An extremely rare portfolio of photograph negatives and publicity stills from behind-the-scenes of The Exorcist recently sold at an auction– and we have no idea who the winning bidder was.
Life member Justin found the auction online once it had closed, but was able to snare the images used to publicize the auction so we could take a closer look. They show rare images of Linda Blair and William O’Malley as Father Dyer from 1972/73, but the entire portfolio was said to also contain images of director William Friedkin and actors Ellen Burstyn and Lee J. Cobb.
It’s a shame we missed out on this one. Hopefully the images will surface again at some stage and we can add them to the growing collection of behind-the-scenes images here at The Exorcist Fansite
