[Los Angeles]: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, [1940]. Vintage original 10 x 13″ (25 x 32 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin photo. Minor crease at top right edge. Near Fine.

Robert Taylor is silhouetted with his shadow in this classic noirish example of male portrait photography. As the original blurb typed on verso indicates, he was in the midst of filming Waterloo Bridge with Vivien Leigh and Escape with Norma Shearer. Taylor was the top romantic lead paired with many of the MGM star actresses. Ink stamped by photographer László Willinger.
