[Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1928]. Vintage original 7 1/4 x 10″ (18 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin print photo. This unique panorama style image shows wear. Each of the four corners have clear tape remnants, there is clear tape at middle blank white area edge, the right bottom corner is chipped and there is loss of emulsion at the mid-right blank right edge and at the top right corner. Remnants of various tapes on the verso, very good-. 

King Vidor’s crowning pet project is one of late silent film’s most beautiful efforts. A simple story, where the city is a main character and how those who live there can be lost in the crowd.

Long shots like this image of the male workers in an office setting set the scene as the camera moves in on an individual worker. The verso includes the original type blurb.
