MY MAN GODFREY (1936)$350.00
Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. William Powell, Carole Lombard, Alice Brady, Gail Patrick, Eugene Pallette, dir: Gregory La Cava; Universal. A beautiful portrait of the exquisite Carole Lombard costume for her role of Irene Bullock. Lombard played the spoiled daughter in a wealthy eccentric family who finds a “forgotten man” (Powell) during a scavenger hunt and makes him her butler — while falling for him as well. Travis Banton designed Lombard’s gowns for this film. Gregory La Cava wrote, directed and produced this classic screwball comedy. This is a keybook still with the linen tape on the verso and the three holes punched at the top. There is a typed blurb on the verso also, indicating that this portrait is an “Exclusive to Miss Livingston,” and therefore was likely used for just one publication. NEAR FINE.
