THE WOMEN WITH JOAN CRAWFORD AND ROSALIND RUSSELL (1939)

$0.00


Vintage original 8 x 10” (20 x 25 cm.) black and white single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Rosalind Russell, Mary Boland, Paulette Goddard, Joan Fontaine, Phyllis Povah, Virginia Weidler, Lucile Watson, Marjorie Main, dir: George Cukor: MGM. One of the most famous films of the 1930s with the wittiest of scripts and dialogue. F. Scott Fitzgerald contributed to the script based on Clare Booth Luce's Broadway play. Superb in every respect, the film nonetheless was released during the most competitive year of superb film works and did not receive a single Academy nomination.

Still 1091-246 is scene still between Rosalind Russell and Joan Crawford in which Sylvia (Russell) discovers that Crystal (Crawford) has a private phone in her Cedric Gibbons designed bath, on which she talks to her lover (after having “stolen” away Mary Haines’(Norma Shearer) husband Stephen.) Adrian had a field day costuming the colorful characters who represented New York society women. The film gave Rosalind Russell’s career a big shot in the arm displaying her talent for rapid fire dialogue comedy.  It gave the often sympathetic Crawford the Cinderella role of a life time, but this time she was a hard driven gold digger and the role and the success of the film revived her sagging box office.  There is slight crinkling at the top and bottom left side edges and tape stains on verso, NEAR FINE.
