Cool Hand Luke-Paul Newman-original studio 8x10 still-1967-cool history on back of still
Cool Hand Luke-director Stuart Rosenberg's prison escape and conformity thriller starring Paul Newman-George Kennedy-Jo Van Fleet-Strother Martin-Dennis Hopper-Wayne Rogers. Cool newspaper usage stamp history on backside of photo. See pic below.
This rare original still has some unique history. There is one very tiny line of French type in the lower left that reads IMPRIME AUX ETATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE . This means the still was printed for use in French-speaking areas of Canada though the still itself was printed in the U.S. This was a common practice from the 1940's till fairly recently. Overall, it is in good condition but, having been used in newspaper advertising at some time in its history, has crop marks and blue smudges around the edges, and enhancements within the image to improve its quality in advertising. There is a yellowed piece of tape at bottom center and creases around the edges and upper left border.
