This copy of Henri Cartier-Bresson's The Europeans bears the unique provenance of being gifted from director and actor Eli Wallach to director Elia Kazan. Wallach, known for his roles as Silva Vacarro in Kazan's screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams' 'Baby Doll' which premiered the same year that he inscribed this book, and for co-starring with Clint Eastwood in 'The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly' was also a founding member of the Actor's Studio. In his inscription to Kazan he says, "To "Gadge" From one picture-maker to another. All my love. - Eli"
