MARIE DRESSLER, WALLACE BEERY | TUGBOAT ANNIE (1933) Oversize BTS photo$750.00
Vintage original 10 x 13″ (25 x 32 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Marie Dressler, Wallace Beery, Robert Young, Maureen O’Sullivan, dir: Mervyn LeRoy; Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Minor creasing along the top blank white margin and at the four corners, near fine.
A wonderfully rare behind-the-scenes look at these engaging character stars on the set of TUGBOAT ANNIE. Both had recently won Academy Awards and were among the top box office stars of 1933.
A very rare still format showing a sweet moment between the co-stars. The attached paper blurb on the verso reads “Together again Marie Dressler and Wallace Beery, seen together in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer picture “Tugboat Annie,” catch forty winks between scenes in their latest picture.” They had made MIN AND BILL a few years before.
Still is coded “MG30776”. Dressler, suffering from cancer at this time, would die a year later.
