An Original Vintage Theatrical Movie Glass Slide (measures 3 1/4" x 4") (Learn More)

Arrowsmith, the 1931 John Ford medical doctor romantic fictional biography melodrama ("The great American novel now becomes the great American motion picture!"; "He devoted his life to service... and his heart to the love of one woman"; "From the Nobel Prize novel by Sinclair Lewis"; about the life of a dedicated doctor, from his earliest days in medical school through a long distinguished career; nominated for the Best Picture Academy Award) starring Ronald Colman (in the title role as Dr. Martin Arrowsmith), Helen Hayes, Richard Bennett, Myrna Loy, and A.E. Anson. Note that there is something very ironic about the crediting United Artists used for the source novel. When Lewis wrote Arrowsmith, he was voted the Pulitzer Prize for it, but he refused it. In 1930, he was given the Nobel Prize for Literature, not specifically for any one novel, and he accepted it. Samuel Goldwyn, the producer of the movie, wanted to advertise that this was an award-winning novel, so he combined the two above facts to get the tagline "from the Nobel Prize novel", which is not strictly true!

Important Added Info: ARE YOU UNFAMILIAR WITH GLASS SLIDES? Many collectors are not familiar with them, because they are incredibly rare, and are rarely offered for sale. Click HERE for a brief history of what they are and what they were used for.

Note that we have provided two images at right for this glass slide. The first image is a high quality scan of just the image area of the slide that shows what it looks like with light shining through it (as it was originally seen when displayed). The second image is a photograph of the entire glass slide (including either the cardboard holder or black tape around the edges, depending on the type of glass slide it is). Clicking on either image will open a new browser window with larger, high quality versions of both images.

Condition: fine. both the slide and the cardboard holder are in excellent condition!
