GONE WITH THE WIND -T29- LAURA HOPE CREWS AS AUNT PITTYPAT HAMILTON
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- P11- Depicts a formal portrait of character actress Laura Hope Crews in her unforgettable portrayal as Aunt Pittypat. The 60 year old actress would also be known for the wonderful characters she played in CAMILLE, THE RAINS CAME, IDIOT’S DELIGHT, THE BLUE BIRD, and many other classic films (after a grand theatrical career) and pass just three years after completing this film. Inter-creasing at top right and left sides of the image. VERY GOOD-FINE.
