HUMPHREY BOGART, CLAIRE LUCE | UP THE RIVER (1930) Photo$1,000.00
[Los Angeles: Fox Film, 1930]. Vintage original 10 x 8″ (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white print still photo. There has been slight conservation to address a chip in the blank extreme right upper margin, near fine.
A striking portrait of Humphrey Bogart and Claire Luce from Bogart’s first feature film, a pre-Code comedy directed by John Ford and released by Fox Film. Bogart was only fourth-billed in this movie, and a close-up portrait like this is a definite rarity. There is a stamped notation on verso from 1930, as well as various stickers from a later photo agency.
