ZIEGFELD GIRL (1941) Judy Garland and Lana Turner


Vintage original 10 x 8” (25 x 20 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Judy Garland, Lana Turner, Hedy Lamarr, James Stewart, dir: Robert Z. Leonard; Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Lana Turner and Judy Garland pose for a publicity still on the Ziegfeld Follies backstage rehearsal set. The story of three girls in show business and the different paths their lives take is an archetype which has been played out in many variations. The film was in development since 1938 and was to originally star a combination of MGM top female stars of the time including Eleanor Powell, Joan Crawford, Virginia Bruce and Margaret Sullavan. However, by 1940, the script was developed for the new reigning female stars. Garland and Turner first worked together in 1938 when Turner was brought into MGM by her mentor Mervyn Le Roy. The two co-starred in LOVE FINDS ANDY HARDY and became good friends, and remained so even when Turner eloped with Garland’s crush Artie Shaw. The two appear to be sharing confidential information in photo coded 1165-173. Slight soil to the blank white margins. ABOUT FINE.
