A portfolio of pre-production stills, iris prints, for the feature film "Summer Love: The First Polish Western" directed by Uklanski housed in a black leather covered portfolio. Attached to the portfolio are two leather ammunition belts that contain 31 deactivated Colt .45 bullets. The film is a remake of Abraham Polonsky's "Tell Them Willie Boy is Here" 1969 with Robert Redford. The story is based on true events depicting one of the last Western manhunts in 1909. Willie Boy, a Native American, kills his girlfriends father in self defense, and the two go on the run, pursued by a search posse led by Sheriff Christopher Cooper.
