LAURENCE OLIVIER AS ACTOR AND DIRECTOR IN HENRY V (1944)$200.00
Vintage original 8 x 10” (20 x 25 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Laurence Olivier, Robert Newton, Leslie Banks, Renee Asherson, dir: Laurence Olivier: Two Cities Film, United Artists. A very rare behind the scenes image of Director/Actor Laurence Olivier on set during the production of this exquisite Technicolor version of Shakespeare’s play. Olivier helmed the British made film as an inspiration to his country as they fought during World War II. This 1945 photo is for advertising for the first US release. The original attached paper blurb is on the verso. This photo was used in publishing and has the sizing markings on the blank whit margins. Olivier wears street clothes and his characters wig and make up and holds what appears to be a bound script as he works out a shot, the crew behind him. VERY GOOD.
