Lot Details
An enormous collection of black and white contact sheets from "The Ten Commandments"
Paramount, 1956. Approximately 400 sheets, each with 12 scenes from the film, equaling over 4,800 individual images; all vintage prints with a glossy finish; virtually covering every scene in the movie, images depict the main actors such as Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, Edward G. Robinson, and Yvonne De Carlo, among others, as well as the hundreds of extras. The majority of the shots are actual scenes from the film, though a few display 'off camera' angles where equipment or matte paintings can be seen in the background. Overall, this is a great collection if one wants to see specific details of this classic. Please know our catalogue illustration does not do justice to this lot.
Each contact sheet: 10 x 8in; Each individual image: 2 1/2 x 2 1/2in
