        JOE DALLESANDRO: NUDE BLACK-AND-WHITE PHOTOGRAPH BY BRUCE OF LOS ANGELES

      Los Angeles, CA: Bruce Of Los Angeles. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Los Angeles, CA: Bruce Of Los Angeles, . Hardcover. Fine/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 1 pages. Rare Joe Dallesandro collectible item. A vintage original silver-gelatin print of the young model/actor, as photographed by Bruce of Los Angeles. The print measures 8 X 10 inches and is encased in two protective sheets: A glassine photographic sleeve which is placed inside an oversize thick plastic cover. It shows Dallesandro at the peak of his beauty: Extremely handsome and sexily buffed, in a full-frontal pose. He is shown holding and looking pensively at his fully erect penis, from a revealing profile angle. The image anticipates by about three decades Peter Hujar&#39;s most celebrated and beautiful nude, "Bruce de Saint Croix, 1976". This is not a digital print or a later, contemporary print but was printed directly from the original negative during Bruce of LA&#39;s lifetime. It is very beautifully developed, with great clarity and subtle contrasts, on Double-Weight Fiber photographic paper, the paper Bruce of LA used in his last years. "Coupled with the fact that it is unstamped but retains its white borders, it dates back to Bruce&#39;s lifetime rather than the later Kensington Road-era. Because this is one of the more erotic poses from Bruce&#39;s single session with Joe Dallesandro, it is a rare print in this large size and format" (Reed Massengill). Joe Dallesandro remains the cult icon/figure of Warhol&#39;s ground-breaking underground films, whose aesthetics and style anticipate by almost fifty years the deliberately crude and gritty sex films that appear routinely online today. Before he was discovered and turned into his very own superstar by Warhol, Joe Dallesandro was the muse of the great male-nude photographers. But it was Bruce of Los Angeles who was the very first to photograph him, in exactly one session. Warhol avidly collected all of the so-called "physique magazines". After his Warhol breakthrough, Dallesandro was photographed by Duane Michals, Jack Mitchell, Francesco Scavullo, and Richard Avedon, among many other mainstream photographers. The Avedon prints are proudly displayed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This is the genuine article, a "must-have" collectible for Joe Dallesandro and male erotic art photography collectors. <b><i> This is an original vintage silver-gelatin print, and it is very boldly and beautifully signed and inscribed in metallic-silver marker in front by the model/actor: "Dream on XXX Joe Dallesandro". The three X&#39;s stand for "love", of course, and is quite special as such. The recipient, Reed Massengill, is the leading authority on male erotic photography in America. According to Massengill, Dallesandro told him that he does not sign his "fully-erect" poses, making an exception in the case of a few of Massengill&#39;s print copies. This is the only such signed and inscribed copy of the print available online, is eminently suitable for framing, and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a museum-quality, collector&#39;s copy. A collection of Dallesandro memorabilia (publicity stills, magazine covers, film outtakes; not one of them is an original print or signed) available online commands more than a staggering $7500. A rare, one-of-a-kind signed copy thus. </b></i> One of the iconic American model/actors of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.

        Taxi Driver Typescript

      [NY]: [Bantam]. [1976]. Partial typescript for Elman&#39;s novelization of the Paul Schrader screenplay for the classic Martin Scorcese film, ranked 52nd on the American Film Institute&#39;s top films of all time. Approximately 75 typescript pages total, about evenly split between multiple reworkings of the first eight pages and the final 13 pages, with five drafts of the first page alone. Approximately nine pages from the middle of the book. Most pages are ribbon-copy; some are carbon typescript; only 13 pages are photocopy. The majority of the pages bear extensive holograph corrections in Elman&#39;s hand, showing a labored, almost pained attempt to do justice to the Schrader screenplay, a copy of which is also included, with an additional 19 revision pages of its own. Accompanied by a typed letter signed by Paul Schrader to Elman (although apparently after the fact as it is written on "American Gigolo" stationery and dated 1980), transmitting a copy of the 1974 script and saying that he "subsequently did more work on the script, but this is a fair representation of what was intended." Also included is a cassette tape labeled "Taxi 2," on which Elman dictates portions of his novelization. Elman&#39;s pages are in a variety of conditions: some are wrinkled and edgeworn; some are on acidifying paper; some are fine. The screenplay is near fine; the revisions are heavily coffee-stained but entirely legible. Elman studied writing at Stanford with Yvor Winters and wrote a number of novels, several books of nonfiction and reportage, and published four poetry collections. His novelization of Taxi Driver, one of the greatest films of the last century, was clearly a more literary undertaking than most such novelizations are. Also included, for reasons unknown to us, is one page of lyrics of an Australian folk song. A unique archive pertaining to a great film. . First Edition.
