VERONICA LAKE (ca. 1942) Iconic portrait$1,250.00

A stunning portrait of Veronica Lake during her early time at Paramount when she was appearing in such now classic films as I WANTED WINGS, THIS GUN FOR HIRE and I MARRIED A WITCH. Lake worked with the top directors and filmmakers and turned in some wonderfully subtle and deft performances, in which her genius has been more recently recognized. This publicity photo is coded #2745034.
