VERONICA LAKE CASTS A NOIR SHADOW | THE HOUR BEFORE THE DAWN (1944) Photo$350.00
[Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1944]. Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin print photo. Creases at bottom right and left corners, about fine.
Veronica Lake stretched her acting chops a bit when she played an Austrian refugee in England who is a Nazi spy, in Somerset Maugham’s story. Not typical of Veronica’s classic iconic look, the portrait has a great noirish feel. It is coded 1997-89.
