36 Original Vintage 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Stills (Learn More)

MGM's Silver Anniversary, the 1949 still set promoting the greatest MGM movies from 1924 (the year that the combination of Metro Pictures and Samuel Goldwyn merged with Louis B. Mayer) through 1949, which was the year this set was created. The movies represented in this set are The Big Parade (1924), The Merry Widow (1925), Flesh and the Devil (1926), Tell It To the Marines (1928), Broadway Melody (1929), Min and Bill (1930), Trader Horn (1931), Grand Hotel (1932), Tugboat Annie (1933), Dinner at Eight (1934), Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), San Francisco (1936), The Good Earth (1937), Boys Town (1938), Boom Town (1940), The Philadelphia Story (1941), Mrs. Miniver (1942), Random Harvest (1943), National Velvet (1944), Meet Me in St. Louis (1945), The Green Years (1946), Easter Parade (1948), and 15 movies MGM was releasing in 1949: Malaya, Any Number Can Play, Neptune's Daughter, In the Good Old Summertime, Edward, My Son, The Red Danube, The Stratton Story, On the Town, That Forsyte Woman, Conspirator, Madame Bovary, The Great Sinner, Battleground, The Secret Garden, and That Midnight Kiss! Note that this still set was released at the same time as the 1949 short film "Some of the Best: Twenty-Five Years of Motion Picture Leadership", which was hosted by Lionel Barrymore and featured clips of these films. The list above is missing three years (1927, 1939, and 1947). The complete set originally contained 40 stills (we know that because ours were found with the original bag). A knowledgeable collector and research indicates that 1927 was Ben-Hur (even though it came out in 1925), 1939 was Gone with the Wind, and 1947 was The Yearling (even though it came out in late 1946). We have never seen stills from this set before (much less a nearly complete set as is offered here)! Each still has a cool identifying title on the bottom and a great scene from each of the above movies. They are not "re-releases", because the movies were not re-released that year, but they are all from 1949, and are really wonderful!

Important Added Info: Note that as noted above the complete set of stills had 40 images, and this group has 36 so while it is not a complete set, it is still a large group from this cool set!

Condition: very good to fine. The stills have some edge wear but overall they are in pretty nice condition!
