An Original Vintage Theatrical Color 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still #1 (Learn More)

Penelope, the 1966 Arthur Hiller New York Greenwich Village bank robbery crime comedy ("She's PUBLIC ENTERTAINMENT #1"; "That's Penelope - the slick stick-up chick... And she's leading the merriest men on the hottest chase from safe to sofa."; "... The world's most beautiful bank-robber"; "Attention! Put your hands in your pockets. If you find anything missing... Penelope probably took it!"; "From the novel by E.V. Cunningham"; about the bored wife of a bank executive, who robs $60,000 from his bank!) starring Natalie Wood (in the title role as Penelope), Ian Bannen, Dick Shawn, Peter Falk, Lila Kedrova, Lou Jacobi, and Jonathan Winters. Note that Natalie Wood's character is described as being "schizophrenic", because she essentially is two people, one a bored housewife, and the other a kleptomaniac who masterminds a major robbery. Edith Head designed a "Schizophrenic Wardrobe" for Wood, so that she could more clearly portray two separate people trapped in a single body!

Important Added Info: Note that although this still was "printed in Great Britain", it has full NSS information. We have been told by an expert that Columbia and MGM had a number of their color stills printed in Great Britain in the late 1950s and the early 1960s (the years vary between the two studios), no doubt because the English color printing was better than the U.S. color printing at this time. However, they were printed in Great Britain to be used in the U.S. (we have heard from many collectors who saw these color stills in U.S. theaters at the time these movies were released, but we have not heard from any English collectors who saw them used in England at that time). In the late 1960s and 1970s some studios started printing color stills like these in Italy, surely for the same reason (because Italian printers had better color printing during those years). But those stills printed in Italy were for use in the U.S., as these stills printed in Great Britain were for use in the U.S.
