KATHARINE HEPBURN IN MALE GARB | SYLVIA SCARLETT (1935) BTS photo$400.00
[Los Angeles, RKO Pictures, 1935]. Vintage original 7 1/4 x 9″ (18 x 23 cm.) borderless black-and-white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo. Remnant of paper blurb on and Associated Press date stamp of Oct. 1935 on verso. Minor wear, near fine.
Rare and what may be an exclusive behind-the-scenes image of Katharine Hepburn looking very boyish as she takes a break on set while playing her gender bending role in SYLVIA SCARLETT. Images of Hepburn in the role are very popular today and this may well be a one of a kind newspaper photographer’s observation of her while at work.
