Robert Frank: Zero Mostel Reads a Book

Measurements: 14.70 x 21.60 cm

First published by the New York Times, “for the fun of it”, in 1963, this idiosyncratic publication relates a series of theatrical and playful encounters by the comic actor, Zero Mostel, with books. Robert Franks’ photographs are filmic sequences which build bizarre narratives in which Mostel’s most famous roles, Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, Pseudolus in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and Max Bialystock in The Producers, are clearly referenced.
