    Description

    Gene Pitney and Marianne Faithfull Silver Gelatin Print by Ian Wright with Handbill. A large-format photograph of singer-songwriter Gene Pitney and singer Marianne Faithfull backstage at the Globe Theatre on December 4, 1964, the two of whom were having a low-key affair at the time. Pitney tried to continue the relationship long-distance after the tour (Faithfull's first national tour), but was foiled by her mother, who hid his letters from her daughter. Faithfull didn't learn the truth until she found them after her mother's death; the heartbroken Pitney wrote the song "I'm Gonna Be Strong" as an ode to his lost love, and it charted at #2 in 1965. The sepia silver gelatin print is matted to an overall size of 24" x 30" (with an image size of 19.25" x 15.75") and was printed by Wright from the original negative. The image is signed by Wright and numbered 1 of 1, and is accompanied by an original handbill from the show, matted beside the image. In Excellent condition.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
