LAUREN BACALL SPECIAL PUBLICITY PORTRAIT FOR THE BIG SLEEP (1945)$850.00
Vintage original 10 x 8” (25 x 20 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Lauren Bacall. A “Special Publicity Still” as is indicated in the typed box at the bottom right corner of the photo margin. A quintessential 40’s portrait showing a relaxed and sultry Bacall, wearing slacks and posed against a zebra print backdrop. The portrait, coded Bacall 102 at the lower left of the image has the original paper publicity blurb attached to the verso. From the Warner Brothers New York office (for which this is likely an exclusive image for New York City publications), it states that she will next be seen in THE BIG SLEEP. A bit of sepia tinting to the images. Minor corner creases, more so at bottom right and some soil in blank white margins. ABOUT FINE.
