GONE WITH THE WIND -A10- CLARK GABLE AS RHETT BUTLER IN A SERIOUS PORTRAIT
Vintage original 12 x 15” (30 x 37.5 cm.) black and white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Olivia de Havilland, Leslie Howard, Hattie McDaniel, dir: Victor Fleming; Selznick International Pictures/Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. The epic American Civil War melodrama which has captured the hearts and imaginations of fans for generations— the story or a strong willed young woman who perseveres and succeeds— she and the characters in this story still inspire. Made during Hollywood’s Golden Year, it won most of the major Academy Awards and to this day many feel well deserved, particularly those for Vivien Leigh for Best Actress and the unprecedented Best Supporting Actress to Hattie McDaniel.
Seldom do oversized exhibition quality prints of this type, including their original attached typed blurbs on the verso come to the collectors market. They are unsurpassed in quality.
SIP 108-477 depicts Clark Gable in a serious mood as character Rhett Butler. His most challenging role to date, he was scared to play the role, though everyone in the world felt that only he could play this part. Director George Cukor was fired and Victor Fleming hired mainly to comfort Clark Gable. Light creasing at the corners and smudge near top right corner blank white margin. ABOUT FINE.
