Natalie Wood transformed from shy teen to mature adult entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee in this musical story based on Gypsy’s memoirs. Ethel Merman originated the ultimate stage mother role on Broadway, which the filmmakers cast with Rosalind Russell, in a robust performance but with singing dubbed. The big Technicolor film was a huge success.
This lovely facial portrait of Natalie Wood is ink stamped on the verso as an “exclusive” and was sent to Dell Publishing. There is also the “GYPSY” and “Warner Bros. Studios, Burbank, Calif.” ink stamps on the verso as well.
