    Description

    Breathless (SNC, 1960). Full-Bleed French Grande (45.5" X 62") Photo Style, Clement Hurel Design.
    This totally unexpected box office sensation from 1960, Jean-Luc Godard's first directorial effort, ushered in an entire pantheon of 'against the grain' modes: broken eye-line matches, improvised dialogue, no unnecessary editing, and total location shooting. All elements of the Nouvelle Vauge (French New Wave). This "Photo Style" is one of two Hurel designed French grandes made for the film, and has some touchup at the folds, pinholes at the edges, and a small hole in the lower left corner. There are a couple of tears at the top of the title, a tear in the upper right corner, and a tear with a mild chip under Jean-Luc Godard's credit. Repair tape had been left on the poster prior to the backing process. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
