GONE WITH THE WIND -P25- ONA MUNSON AS BELLE WATLING 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 108-173 Depicts a portrait of Ona Munson in her most memorable role as Belle Watling. From the New York stage and known as a musical actress she gained film immortality as the good hearted madam. Unfortunately it rather type cast her and she found it difficult to break the mold in her future work. There is a crease along the bottom section of the image, a small tear at the bottom right blank white margin edge and creasing at the bottom right corner. ABOUT FINE.
