Description

Perhaps best remembered for her role in Jean-Luc Godard’s seminal New Wave classic Breathless, Iowa-born Jean Seberg (1938–1979) was found dead at the age of 40 from a probable suicide by barbiturate overdose. Her support of the Black Panthers attracted the attention of the FBI, leading some to speculate that her radical political ties may have contributed to her decision to take her life. Vintage 10 x 8 photo, an original publicity still from the 1961 film Les grandes personnes (identified on the reverse by its British title, A Taste of Love), signed and inscribed in ink, “To John, Jean Seberg.” A few subtle dings and surface marks, otherwise fine, clean condition. R&R COA.
