[Vol 1.4/5; Vol 2.6-14] French actor and director Jacques Brunius' copies of La Revue du Cinema, with his repeated ownership signatures, annotated to reveal his contribution of pseudonymous article and with a small piece of celluloid film laid in containing a fragment of a 1920/30s scene showing a hearse and policemen. Jacques Brunius acted as Buñuel's assistant on L'Age D'Or working on a screenplay coauthored by Salvador Dali in 1930. This collection comprises two issues from the journal's first 1929 series and a run of nine issues from 1930. Original printed wrappers with glassine covers loosely contained in a Revue Du Cinema binder, homemade label to spine, with various inserts including 1949 film programme for a London film Society showing of L'Age D'Or with an introduction written by Brunius who has written his ownership signature on the front cover or an early page of nine of the issues. Most significant is his annotation to the contents page and to page 76 of issue 2.7 which reveals that he authored the article on 'Disques de Cinema' under the pen-name 'Mike Brunar'. Other interesting inserts include a small piece of celluloid film and pencilled annotation to the article about Eric von Stroheim (1.5). Additional annotation to 'Lubitsch au Travail' (2.10) and the ownership signature of George Sadoul (author of l'Histoire générale du cinéma) appears on 2.11. A most intriguing set.
