MARIE DRESSLER AND WALLACE BEERY TAKE A NAP (1933)$750.00
Vintage original 10 x 13” (25 x 32 cm.) weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Marie Dressler, Wallace Beery, Robert Young, black and white double Maureen O’Sullivan, dir: Mervyn LeRoy; Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. A wonderfully rare behind the scenes look at these engaging character stars on the set of TUGBOAT ANNIE. Both had recently won Academy Awards and were amongst the top box office stars of 1933. A very rare still format showing a sweet moment between the co-stars. The attached paper blurb on the verso reads “Together again Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery, see together in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture “Tugboat Annie,” catch forty winks between scenes in their latest picture.” They had made MIN AND BILL a few years before. Still is coded MG30776. Dressler, suffering from cancer at this time would die a year later. Minor creasing along the top blank white margin and at the four corners. NEAR FINE.
