Cat. #00060512: PIERRE BRASSEUR

Extremely rare vintage 5x7-inch half-tone book-weight black and white portrait by Harcourt, removed from a theatrical program, boldly signed in black fountain pen: "Amities/Pierre Brasseur." In fine condition, with light wrinkling in the background at the top left. Marvelous, French-born Pierre Brasseur is had leading roles in four internationally renowned classics:  Marcel Carne's Port of Shadows (1938) and Children of Paradise (1945), Phillipe De Broca's King of Hearts (1966), and Georges Franju's cult horror masterpiece Eyes Without a Face (1960). In the latter, Brasseur unforgettably portrayed a psychopathic surgeon who lures young women to his stately mansion, drugs them, and carefully removes sections of their skin, subsequently grafting them to his masked daughter's damaged face. A genuinely bone-chilling performance!
