Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) single weight black-and-white glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. David Niven, Kim Hunter, Richard Livesey, Raymond Massey, Marius Goring, Robert Coote, Kathleen Byron, Richard Attenborough, dir: Michael Powell/Emeric Pressburger; Eagle-Lion. The classic fantasy of war and romance. Story concerns a British aviator who cheats death and must argue for his life before a court in heaven.
Here presented is a portrait of leading lady Kim Hunter as the character June. One of the finest films of all time, today it is recognized particularly for its brilliant cinematography by Jack Cardiff. First released in the U.K. in November of 1946 (before the King and Queen of England), it premiered in the U.S. on Christmas Day 1946 in New York City. Lovely portrait — coded “106 (IP)- 83 A” — of the Academy Award-winning actress has just a minor crease at the top left corner. FINE.
