Subject

Cork Film Festival, Laurence Harvey, Wolf Mankowitz

Description

This is a signed black and white publicity photo of the Lithuanian-born English actor and director Laurence Harvey (1928-1973). It shows Harvey, in a dark polo neck jumper, looking directly at the lens of the camera. The photo is signed and dedicated to the former festival director Dermot Breen: To Dermot Breen, with thanks & affectionate good wishes, Laurence Harvey.

Harvey's extensive filmography includes The Manchurian Candidate (John Frankenheimer, 1962) with Frank Sinatra and Janet Leigh; Life at the Top (Ted Kotcheff, 1965); and narration for the Soviet film Tchaikovsky (Igor Talankin, 1969). Around the time of his visit to the Cork festival, Harvey starred in Escape to the Sun (Menahem Golan, 1972) and The Deep (Orson Welles, 1970) which was an unfinished film starring Harvey and Jeanne Moreau. When Harvey died in 1973 it ended any chance of the picture being finished. One of Harvey's final commitments was to film Cockatrice (1963), a satirical novel about filmmakers by Wolf Mankowitz, which was never made. Wolf Mankowitz was also a visitor to the festival during the 1960s and 1970s.
