    A John Wayne-Related Collection of Original Black and White Negatives from "The Alamo." United Artists, 1960. Countless original negative strips (approximately 1,000 different images), both 120mm as well as 35mm, showing great behind-the-scenes shots (many of which have never before been seen) of the actors such as John Wayne, Richard Widmark, Laurence Harvey, Chill Wills, and Richard Boone, among others, as well as the immense outdoor sets of this film that was close to the Duke's heart as he produced it, directed it, and acted in it; also included are a number of photocopied contact sheets showing what many of the photographs look like; please note our catalogue illustration does not do justice to this lot as the negatives need to be printed up in order to see the images.
    Negative Dimensions: 4" x 5" and 1" x 1 1/2"
