Le doulos (Original French poster for the 1962 film noir)
Paris: Pathe Contemporary Films, 1962. Vintage French grande poster (affiche) for the 1962 French film noir. One of two styles issued, with no priority. Director Melville's seventh film, and narratively perhaps his most complex, a major cinematic entry in the birth of the modern anti-hero. The story unfolds by way of two characters, Maurice and Silien, and consistently switches back and forth between them, leading the audience to grasp randomly for a distinct protagonist (despite the fact that both are criminals). As the story unfolds, themes of loyalty and friendship subtly and devastatingly emerge. 47 x 63 inches. Rolled, on archival linen. Near Fine. Criterion Collection 407. Buss, French Film Noir. Grant US. Selby Masterwork US. Spicer US.
Bookseller: Royal Books [United States]
