Laid in is a nice foldover brochure for the dvd release of La Dolce Vita.
Vintage double weight silver gelatin still photograph of Federico Fellini and actress Magali Noël on the set of "Amarcord, " taken by photographer Patrick Morin. With Morin's stamp on the verso, and importantly, the stamp of the Swedish Magazine Service for whom Morin was working, dated August 3, 1973. A vintage print of what has become one of the most iconic images of Fellini at his peak. One of the greatest directors of women in the history of world cinema, at the center of his element, projecting confidence and focus, and the subject of female adoration. Noël was a favorite of Fellini, appearing in "La Dolce Vita" (1960), "Satyricon" (1969), and "Amarcord" (1973). She also appeared in a number of other important foreign films, including "Du rififi chez les hommes" (Jues Dassin, 1955), "Les Grandes Manœ uvres" (René Clair, 1955)) "Boulevard" (Julien Duvivier, 1960), and "Z" (Costa Gavras, 1969). Morin was one of the first high-end celebrity photographers, capturing classic images of figures including Charles De Gaulle, Erich von Stroheim, Grace Kelly, Jean Cocteau, Kirk Douglas, Gina Lollobrigida, Anouk Aimee, and Marcello Mastroianni. He is perhaps best known for staging (along with Roger Vadim) a scandalous half-naked-in-Cannes image of Brigitte Bardot on the beach, before the term "paparazzi" was even coined.
