KATHARINE HEPBURN | ALICE ADAMS (1935) Portrait by Ernest Bachrach – 2


[Los Angeles]: RKO Studios, [1935]. Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photo. Stamped on verso in ink with Ernest Bachrach photographer stamp as well as attached printed paper blurb. Crease near top left corner, minor chip at bottom left corner and minor creasing near right bottom edge. About fine.

Katharine Hepburn played the small town Indiana girl who wants to improve her social status in this adaptation of Booth Tarkington’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 1921 novel. Walter Plunkett designed a simple contemporary-to-1935 wardrobe for her, but for this glamour portrait she wears a lace and crocheted top with diamond clips. 

Photo is coded NY Q-324.
