Item Description: Los Angeles, CA: Wet And Wild Summer And Blue Lagoon Film Productions, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. Signed. 3 pages. Published in 1992. Rare Christopher Atkins collectible set. A signed copy of the 8 X 10 inch contemporary color print of the Hollywood film actor/sex symbol in a full-frontal nude shot together with two signed copies of 8 X 10 inch contemporary color prints of Atkins in posed shots from "The Blue Lagoon". "Wet And Wild Summer": Taken during filming (in 1992), the photograph was never released to promote the film itself. It is clearly a "souvenir" snapshot/photograph, meant for private consumption, not a "publicity" shot for or an "outtake" from the film, and is beautifully printed on glossy FujiFilm archival color paper. Shows Christopher Atkins intrepidly yet casually holding a live lobster. Encased in its own protective plastic sheet. "Blue Lagoon": Printed on coated FujiFilm archival color paper to the highest standards, the images are bathed in warm summer tones, and are unusually clear, crisp, and bright, unmistakably indicating that they are publicity photographs, not "outtakes" from the film, as most available "Blue Lagoon" photographs tend to be (the latter lose much of their clarity in the transfer process). Each is encased in its own protective plastic sheet. They show Christopher Atkins wearing only his trademark white loincloth, at the peak of his "heartthrob" masculine beauty. While his breakthrough film, "The Blue Lagoon", will always be remembered as Atkins' most celebrated role, he has appeared in more than 50 films since then and has a loyal fan base to this day, more than twenty years later. As many commentators have pointed out, Atkins has appeared mostly unclothed (or in his underwear or a skimpy Speedo) in all of his films, a conscious decision by film producers. To his credit, Atkins never seemed to mind being treated so brazenly as "eye candy" as long as the acting roles kept coming in. "As soon as I get a job where I don't have to wear a loincloth, I will be wearing a Speedo! Will I ever have an acting job where I don't have to be shirtless or nude?" (Christopher Atkins). Nope. A "must-have" collectible, not just memorabilia, set for Christopher Atkins collectors. This contemporary color print is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in blue marker in front by the actor: "Lobsters! Christopher Atkins". Atkins signed directly on the photograph itself, and his specimen-signature is one of the best we have ever seen. It comes with two photographs from "Blue Lagoon", also very prominently and beautifully signed in pen-markers by Atkins. This set is now collectible. As far as we know, this is the only such set available online and has no flaws, pristine beauties. There are many authentic signed Christopher Atkins photographs available online, but this "Lobster" photograph is the only one we have ever seen. A rare signed set thus. One of the sexiest living film actors. A flawless collectible set. (SEE ALSO ANTONIO BANDERAS, LEONARDO DICAPRIO, HEATH LEDGER, AND BRAD PITT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). Signed by Author.
