Two (2) vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) sepia-toned single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photos, USA. Publicity portraits of the 17-year-old dancer during her first days in film: as a featured player at the newly-merged Twentieth Century Fox. She was performing in the popular CHARLIE CHAN IN EGYPT and the spectacular DANTE'S INFERNO at this time. Fox started the process of grooming her for stardom, under her original name. The process of turning her from featured player and dancer (in somewhat ethnic Hispanic roles) to "all-American" sex symbol would be undertaken a few years later when her name and appearance would be changed by the powers-that-be at Columbia Pictures. Fox, however, initiated the change which would come about over the next few years. In portrait labeled "F84/63" Rita wears winter fashions in a snowy setting. This image has three creases at the upper left corner and some border soiling. There is also some very light crop marking around her face for the photo's newspaper/magazine usage. Her name is written in color pencil on verso and the ink publisher's stamp has been blotted out. There are remnants of where an attached paper blurb was once attached. In portrait labeled "F84/103" Rita models a hair dressing, her hair braided and pinned to her head and decorated with star ornaments. There is a pencil mark at the middle of the still, which is very light but does go across her cheek. An original publisher's ink stamp is on verso. This represents the process of becoming a star. A very rare early look at the screen goddess. Overall, these photos are NEAR VERY GOOD. Bookseller Inventory # 10449
