An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Key Book (8x10 keybook) 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Still (Learn More)

Charles Laughton was an English actor from the 1920s to the 1960s. He appeared on the stage in England beginning in 1926, and he appeared in a few movie shorts in the 1920s, but his acting career really did not begin until 1931. Some of his movies include: Witness for the Prosecution, Spartacus, Mutiny On The Bounty (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Advise and Consent, The Private Life Of Henry VIII (winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for this film), and Island of Lost Souls. He was married for many years to Elsa Lanchester, although he was reportedly gay. He directed a single movie, "Night of the Hunter", and because it was not financially successful, he never directed another, which is a real shame, because that movie is considered a major classic by most critics! Laughton passed away in 1962 at the age of 63.
Important Added Info: Note that this still has been mounted to a linen type material and has an extra 1" to the left of the still, along with four punch holes in that extra area (typical of many key book stills). The still has no writing on the front or back, but it has the still code "P1428" at bottom left. If anyone knows what movie this is from, please e-mail us and we will post it here. The still clearly IS vintage, and is likely from the 1930s.

Condition: very good to fine.
