GONE WITH THE WIND -Y34- THE BURNING OF ATLANTA
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 108-386- Depicts Scarlett and Rhett during their plight to escape the Yankee invasion of Atlanta during the Civil War. This scene, in which various standing sets of the Selznick backlot were burned to achieve the spectacle of the burning of Atlanta (including the great wall of KING KONG here) was amongst the very first footage filmed in late December 1938. Stand-in for Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh (who had not been cast as of yet) enact the scene. A portion of the attached paper blurb on the verso is missing. There are border and corner creases and a 2” (5 cm.) tear at mid right side of the photo. VERY GOOD.
