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

Twentieth Century, the classic 1934 Howard Hawks New York City Broadway theater stage acting romantic screwball comedy ("Broadway's greatest comedy smash - even greater on the screen!"; "From the notable New York Stage Success by Ben Hecht - Charles MacArthur - Chas B. Milholland"; about a legendary Broadway director who takes a simple girl and makes her a huge star, and then becomes obsessed with her; surely one of the greatest of all movies ever made, comedy or otherwise!) starring John Barrymore (as Oscar Jaffe), Carole Lombard (as Lily Garland aka Mildred Plotka), Walter Connolly, Roscoe Karns, Ralph Forbes, and Etienne Girardot (as the fake rich man who goes around giving out "fortunes"). Note that Charles Bruce Millholland, who was an assistant to legendary Broadway producer David Belasco, wrote a play parodying Belasco, which he could not get performed (perhaps because people were afraid of Belasco). In 1934, it was used as the basis for this classic movie.

Important Added Info: Note that I have seen this classic movie several times, and I don't believe that Barrymore wears this makeup in the movie (it looks like the character from the classic first scene of Barrymore rehearsing with Lombard, where he plays all the other parts!). If anyone knows more about this still, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Condition: very good to fine.
