VERONICA LAKE (1944) Elegant portrait$1,250.00
[Los Angeles: Paramount, 1944] Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white single weight semi-glossy semi-silver gelatin print still photo. Minor signs of handling, just about fine.
Beautiful and elegant profile portrait of Veronica Lake sporting her iconic blonde hairstyle. Though the War Department requested that she pose for photos in 1943 demonstrating to those women who had adapted her unique look the dangers of working in the war factories while wearing the style, she maintained her appearance for publicity and movie roles.
The Hour Before the Dawn was the film she appeared in when this portrait was released. Photo is coded P2745-N671, with Paramount copyright on bottom margin.
