Two Roberto Benigni autographed stills, a clapperboard, and a script from the production of Blake Edwards' comedy sequel Son of the Pink Panther.
The two stills show Benigni as Gendarme Jacques Gambrelli and have been signed in gold and silver-coloured ink. The black-painted wooden clapperboard displays the film's title painted in pink along with the names of director Blake Edwards and director of photography Dick Bush. A strip of masking tape runs along the bottom, with "28th September '92, Day-Exterior'' in black marker. The 134-page script is attributed to focus puller Simon Hume, and some pages feature handwritten pencil annotations. The lot displays signs of production use. Dimensions (clapperboard): 2 cm x 26 cm x 20.5 cm (3/4" x 10¼" x 8"); (script): 28 cm x 22 cm x 1.5 cm (11" x 8" x½")
