This exhibition showcases many previously unseen images of the most innovative and daring directors from the golden age of film.
To coincide with the 50th anniversary of the London Film Festival, Getty Images Gallery proudly pays homage to some of the world’s most famous film directors with the launch of an exhibition showcasing maverick directors of the film industry through the ages.
From Tim Burton's ‘Batman’ (1989) to Richard Burton on the set of ‘Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf’ (1966) with Mike Nichols, Elizabeth Taylor and George Segal. Director’s Cut contains iconic gems and cult classics from the Getty Images Hulton Archive, some of which will be seen in public for the very first time.
Highlights of the exhibition include an image capturing a snatched moment between the classic femme fatale Barbara Stanwyck and director Billy Wilder on the set of the film noir ‘Double Indemnity’ (1944), Brigitte Bardot in sunglasses and period costume discussing a scene with Louis Malle during the filming of ‘Viva Maria’ (1965) and an amazing image that captures the quirky character of arguably the world’s greatest director, Alfred Hitchcock.
