YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU (BROADWAY) (1936) – 2
Vintage original 10 x 13 ” (25 x 33 cm.) double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Ruth Attaway, Jess Barker, Frank Conlan, Josephine Hull, George Tobias, Oscar Polk, staged by George S, Kaufman; Booth, Imperial and Ambassador Theatres. Produced by Sam Harris, from the Moss hart and George S. Kaufman script, Kaufman had a new hit on his hands at the same time his Stage Door was running, In fact, famous theatrical photographer Alfredo Valente captured Kaufman and cast as they rehearsed on the stage set for that very play.
Here they are doing an early table read with Kaufman and Hart at the head of the table; the actors include Oscar Polk of Gone with the Wind-fame. Of course, Frank Capra would immortalize the story a year later in the Academy Award-winning film about the antics of an eccentric family.
Valente’s stamp is on the back as are printing marks and other stamps. Minor edge wear and crease at top left corner. NEAR FINE.
