The Helen Morgan Story (released in other English-speaking countries as "Both Ends of the Candle"), the 1957 Michael Curtiz musical biography ("Helen Morgan - her songs - her sins."; "'Look, I watched you tonight. You couldn't take your eyes off me. That's why I'm here.'"; "'I'm Helen Morgan. I'm a star, a star...'"; "How did you get in here, baby? You don't look like our kind..."; "How could this happen to a girl like Helen Morgan?"; "Helen Morgan sat on a piano - and no star ever climbed higher. Helen Morgan fell in love, and no woman ever fell lower...! Her real story - from real life - the story no one has told before! There was only one Helen Morgan - there's only one The Helen Morgan Story"; "This is the intimate startling real-life story behind the glitter of the girl the called the Goddess of the Jazz Age. A story no one has told before..."; "Written by Oscar Saul, Dean Riesner, Stephen Longstreet, and Nelson Gidding"; about the famed real life torch singer, Helen Morgan, who became a major star at the height of the Roaring Twenties, but who became an alcoholic and had a sensational crash landing to her career in the early 1930s; she had one final triumph in the re-make of "Show Boat" in 1936, but died of cirrhosis of the liver in 1941 when she was only 41 years old) starring Ann Blyth (in the title role as Helen Morgan), Paul Newman (extremely young in his fourth movie role!), Richard Carlson, Gene Evans, Alan King, Cara Williams, and Edward Platt

Important Added Info: Note that this still measures 8 1/4" x 10" [21 x 25 cm]. Also note that this still appears in every way to be original U.S. release EXCEPT that there is one very tiny line of French type in the lower right. It reads, "IMPRIME AUX ETATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE". A collector has told us that he believes this means the still was printed for use in areas that included French-speaking parts of Canada, but that it WAS printed in the U.S., and that makes complete sense to us (and we have seen this on stills from the 1940s through the early 2000s, so it has certainly been done for an extremely long time)! So it is an original still from 1957, but it was printed partially for use in French-speaking Canada. If anyone knows more about this, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Condition: good to very good. There is a 1/4" scuff mark below Newman's eye (it may have been caused when the still was colored). Otherwise, the still is in nice condition.
