A cute cheesecake image of a young and healthy Kim Novak taken during the dressing room scene of the classic filming of William Inge’s dramatic play PICNIC. A rare original studio- and photographer-stamped photograph by Van Pelt, one which does not appear in collections of Van Pelt’s photography. His “Columbia Pictures Corp., photo by Van Pelt” stamp appears on the verso.
Novak is one of the few stars of classic Hollywood still with us who makes many public appearances, including those on Turner Classic Movies. This was one of her first starring roles.
