Catalogue Note

Jakob the Liar (Columbia, 1999) was "not the kind of movie that anyone expected [Williams] to make... But it was one he felt he needed to make".  Steven Haft, Williams's producer on Dead Poet Society and Jakob the Liar noted that this role "'played to [Williams's] humanity in one form or another,'" and that '"he became very close to the character'." In addition to the advance posters and crew jacket, the present lot also features the sign for Jakob's shop that was used in the film.
