New York: Film Culture, 1956. First edition. 4to, saddle-stapled wraps.
A rare early issue of the long-running publication, not just the most important film journal in America during the post-war period, but a periodical that would also incorporate related arts into it's scope, especially with those issues which were designed by artists associated with Fluxus, pop, and other avant-garde movements.
This issue includes a great cover featuring an advance still from Federico Fellini's La Strada, and contributions by Joris Ivens (on Borinage), Edouard de Laurot on La Strada, "A Thin Slice of Americana" by Andrew Sarris, Lotte H. Eisner on Rene Clair's Les Grandes Manoeuvres, John Gilchrist on Pagnol, and the usual reviews and news.
Near fine. Early issues such as this are scarce. Item #26000
