[Los Angeles]: RKO Radio Pictures, [1935]. Vintage original 7 1/2 x 9 1/2″ (18 x 23 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photo. RKO Radio Pictures ink stamp on verso. Blank white margins slightly trimmed for publication, near fine.

Musician Constance Dane Roberti (Katharine Hepburn) marries womanizing orchestra conductor Franz Roberti (Charles Boyer), and melodrama unfolds as their happy jet setting lifestyle is threatened by his affair with a society woman.

The two share a melancholy moment over a bottle of rye in this scene (the recent Prohibition repeal made it possible for stories to include the open use of alcohol). 1935 was a big year for Hepburn with three major films at RKO. A grand romance with music by Max Steiner, neither star liked the script, but they became friends and were reunited in 1969’s The Madwoman of Chaillot.
