VERONICA LAKE ICONIC PORTRAIT FOR I MARRIED A WITCH (1942)
Vintage original 10 x 8” (25 x 20 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Fredric March, Veronica Lake, Robert Benchley, Susan Hayward, dir: Rene Clair; Paramount/United Artists. Veronica Lake’s fame soared in 1942 with the release of her now classic noir films THE GLASS KEY, THIS GUN FOR HIRE and the delightful I MARRIED A WITCH. Each film brought a plethora of new glamour portraits, Lake with her trademark tresses modeling an Edith Head gown. Lake was surely one of Edith Head’s favorite models. Portrait P2745-507 publicized this much touted comedy. This portrait is truly iconic of Veronica Lake, her trademark hair over the eye. During 1942 Paramount had such a surplus of production ready for release that United Artists purchased this and other films to release under their banner. Most of Lake’s portraits were taken by Eugene Robert Richee. Very minor soil and crease near bottom right corner. ABOUT FINE.
