    Description

    An Orson Welles Group of Black and White Photographs from "Touch of Evil." Universal International Pictures, 1958. Seven total, all original prints with a glossy finish, verso of most stamped in red reading in part "This photograph is owned by / Life Magazine" and "Nov 27 1957," each depicting Welles (and others) on the set of the now-mythical film noir that he wrote, directed, and starred in as "Police Captain Hank Quinlan" though infamously, his version was butchered by the studios; included with a letter from Beatrice Welles indicating she consigned this lot directly to Heritage Auctions. (Please note there is a crease mark on one photograph and minor paper loss on another.)
