ANNA KARENINA (1935) – 6$500.00
Vintage original 11 x 14″ (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card no. 4, USA. Greta Garbo, Fredric March, Freddie Bartholomew, Maureen O’Sullivan, May Robson, Basil Rathbone, Reginald Owen, dir: Clarence Brown: MGM. The ballroom scene from this classic Garbo film based on Tolstoy’s novel. Garbo’s favorite writer Salka Viertel adapted the book for her, along with S. N. Behrman and Clemence Dane, for what many feel is the definitive film version. Anna must come to terms with the social repercussions when she allows herself to fall in love while married and with a child. Technical aspects of this film were far advanced and Garbo’s understated performance earned her the New York Film Critics Award for Best Actress. Cedric Gibbons designed the impeccable period sets. There is one small marginal mended chip, overall NEAR FINE.
