ANNA KARENINA (1935) Oversized photo no. 8


Vintage original 14 x 17″ (35 x 43 cm.) sepia-tinted photograph no. 8, USA, Greta Garbo, Fredric March, Freddie Bartholomew, Maureen O’Sullivan, May Robson, Basil Rathbone, Reginald Owen, dir: Clarence Brown: MGM. Very unusual and beautiful oversize lobby display piece for this classic Garbo film based on Tolstoy’s novel. Garbo’s favorite writer Salka Viertel adapted the book for her, as did S. N. Behrman and Clemence Dane for what many feel is the definitive film version. Anna must come to terms with the social repercussions when she allows herself to fall in love while married and with a child. Greta Garbo as Anna Karenina and Frederic March as Vronsky share a contemplative moment in the garden. Technical aspects of this film were far advanced and Garbo’s understated performance earned her the New York Film Critics Award for Best Actress. This was at one time one of a numbered set of eight oversized photos. There has been light professional conservation to this rare photo, NEAR FINE.
