La SIRENE DU MISSISSIPI (The Mississippi Mermaid) (1969) - FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT Movie posters (Part 2/10)
FRANCOIS TRUFFAUT's first movie with both Catherine Deneuve (see Part 8) and Jean-Paul Belmondo is a dramedy shot mainly on the Reunion island (and not in the South of the US as the title may lead us to believe) where two estranged lovers get married after only having a mail correspondence with Belmondo chasing Deneuve back to France faster she stole his money!
If the movie hasn’t been a success, it still is a visual feat as both actors shine against the lush backdrop of La Reunion island’s scenery and Deneuve is simply luminous as shown in the many posters above
Starting with the Japanese movie poster then 4 Italian fotobusta then the Yugoslavian and US posters, concluding with both the cover and the inside of the Japanese movie program.
In October 2014 all the NOUVELLE VAGUE movie posters are On SALE
