1963. On the back of this publicity shot for Il gattopardo featuring Claudia Cardinale is stamped a quite wonderful coat of arms featuring a leopard. There are also stamps from Pathé-Titanus-20th Century Fox and Imapress and a printed caption (the original is in French):
Claudia CARDINALE tries the dresses she will wear in “THE LEOPARD”, a film directed by Luchino VISCONTI and based on Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s novel. The fitting session lasted eight hours. She was surprised that after standing for such a long time, she felt a little tired. But everyone knows that no professional model accepts this type of work for more than four hours.
