McQueen based his Deliverance collection on director Sydney Pollack’s 1969 film They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, which follows impoverished couples competing to win a dance marathon set in a Santa Monica dance hall during the Great Depression. The bleak reality of the Depression referenced by the film—and some of the Americana-inspired looks in McQueen’s runway show—are captured by these period photographs.
