The Films of Dali

Salvador Dali, most known for his surrealist painting was always eager to try out new mediums. He worked with the likes of Luis Bunuel and Alfred Hitchcock on a number of films in several different capacities. In Un Chien Andalou he co-wrote the script with Luis Bunuel. In Alfred Hitchcock’s Spellbound he had contributed to set design and concept work for a dream sequence that did not survive the cutting room floor. He was the first visual artist in film to stipulate that he retained ownership of all his sketches and paintings. Unfortunately, his dream sequence featuring Ingrid Bergman was a casualty of the conflict this caused with the studio.

I have cataloged 26 images relating to Dali’s film projects from Dali and Film. These are available to the SCAD community in our Digital Image Database.
