An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Glass Slide (measures approximately 3" x 4") (Learn More)

Caravan, the 1934 Erik Charell romantic love triangle inheritance marriage musical ("'Live nowhere revel anywhere love... everywhere'"; "From a story by Melchior Lengyel"; screenplay by Samson Raphaelson; about a royal girl who must marry on a certain day or lose her inheritance, and she weds a gypsy, but she loves another) starring Charles Boyer, Loretta Young, Jean Parker, Phillips Holmes, Louise Fazenda, Eugene Pallette, C. Aubrey Smith, Charley Grapewin, Noah Beery Sr., and Dudley Digges. Note that Charles Boyer had been appearing in European movies since 1928, and he had two minor roles in U.S. movies in the early 1930s, but this was his first starring role in a U.S. movie! Also note that Phillips Holmes had made an impression in some movies in the late 1920s. In 1931, he would get the lead in the first version of "An American Tragedy", which made it seem like he would become a major star, but that didn't materialize. He had a major affair with Libby Holman, but that was certainly complicated, and when they broke up, she immediately married his brother! Oddly, years later, Holman would have another very complicated affair with Montgomery Clift, who played the same part in the remake of "An American Tragedy", re-titled "A Place in the Sun". Sadly, Holmes died in a plane crash in 1942. I am very surprised no one has made a movie about his life, or a joint movie about him and Libby Holman! There was also a French/German version of this movie, also made by Fox in 1934. Universal did the same thing with "Dracula" in 1931. They filmed the movie twice, once in English, and once in Spanish, with two entirely different casts, U.S. actors for the English version and mostly Latin actors for the Spanish version, obviously for release in Spanish speaking countries, and the same was done with this movie (the French/German language version starred Charles Boyer and Annabella). If anyone knows more about this, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Important Added Info: Glass slides were designed to be put in a special projector that would project the image onto a movie screen (they use exactly the same concept as 35mm slides). We have taken a digital photo of each that shows the general condition of the overall slide and holder, and we have also made a digital scan that shows the glass image well, but does not show the holder (except as a dark outline).

Condition: very good to fine. The glass slide itself is in nice condition and the cardboard holder has some minor smudges (as can be seen in our super-sized images).
