Bunuel invites an influential film historian to a screening of Robinson Crusoe
Description                           Estimate: $600+          

Highly influential Spanish-born filmmaker of surrealist tendencies whose Un chien andalou (1928) remains an icon of avant-garde cinema. Though he remained controversial for the duration of his career, he attained a measure of Hollywood respectability with Academy Award nominations for his screenplays for The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie (1972) and That Obscure Object of Desire (1977). Scarce ALS in French, signed “Bunuel,” one page, 4.25 x 5.5, on the correspondence side of a French “pneumatique” form, May 29, 1954. Letter to Maurice Bessy, editor of Cinemonde magazine, in full (translated): “Next Tuesday at 9:00 PM, I am going to show ‘Robinson Crusoe’ at United Artists, 27 rue d’Astorg. If you are free, I would be very happy to see you among the few friends who are coming, supposing that this children’s story can interest you. I was told that Jean is not in Paris. If he is back please invite him to it for me.” In fine condition, with trivial creasing and show-through from postmarks to reverse.
