'Le Mepris' Original Vintage French Movie Poster by Georges Allard, 1963

$3,527.41

About

At the height of her fame, Brigitte Bardot is every inch the devastating screen siren on Georges Allard's sumptuous and sought after poster for the country of origin release of Jean-Luc Godard's masterful New Wave drama 'Le Mépris' (released in the US as 'Contempt'). Based on the 1954 Italian novel 'Il disprezzo,' the widescreen epic follows the breakdown of a marriage during a film shoot in Italy. Starring Michel Piccoli as screenwriter Paul Javal, Bardot as his beautiful young wife, Jack Palance as an arrogant American producer and legendary director Fritz Lang as himself, the film within a film also presents a study of filmmaking itself, jam-packed with movie references and observations on the cinematic process. Released to universal critical acclaim, sight and sound critic Colin MacCabe hailed 'Le Mépris' as "the greatest work of art produced in postwar Europe."
