Vintage original 10 x 13″ (25 x 33 cm.) theatre lobby standee, USA. Greta Garbo, Robert Taylor, Lionel Barrymore, Elizabeth Allan, Jessie Ralph, Henry Daniell, Lenore Ulric, Laura Hope Crews, Rex O’Malley, dir: George Cukor; MGM.
The finest and certainly most romantic version ever of the classic Alexandre Dumas fils novel. Legendary Zoe Akins, Frances Marion and James Hilton wrote the screenplay and George Cukor brought Greta Garbo’s most fantastic portrayal to the screen. Only MGM, with its sumptuous period sets (they bought real antiques and dressings in Europe), costumes by Adrian, the cinematography of William Daniels and Karl Freund, and the romantic creative atmosphere of 1936 Hollywood could have created this great film.
This very unusual theatre display piece captures in photography a tense moment in the story in which Marguerite Gautier (Garbo) throws over her lover Armand Duval (Robert Taylor). Mounted on board with its Apeda Photography Studios standee backing, it appears to have never been used. This is most likely the only one of these in existence. There is only very slight handling wear, FINE.
