Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Walter Huston, Ruth Chatterton, Mary Astor, Paul Lukas, David Niven, John Payne, Spring Byington, Maria Ouspenskaya, dir: William Wyler; Sam Goldwyn/United Artists. One of the finest films of the 1930s, it featured Walter Huston, Ruth Chatterton and Mary Astor in perhaps their finest performances. The film won an Academy Award for Art Direction. From the Sinclair Lewis novel with screenplay by Sidney Howard (who received larger billing than director Wyler). this was a highly frank depiction of a failed marriage presented at a time when films rarely dealt with this issue, much less realistically. Presented as a Broadway play in 1934, Walter Huston and several cast members reprised their roles for the film. Huston was nominated by the Academy as Best Actor, as was director Wyler and the film. During the filming Mary Astor was going through a high profile divorce case and often slept on the set to avoid confrontation. Wyler, Goldwyn and Chatterton supported her and appeared as character witnesses in court. Astor said she channeled the sorrow she felt in her personal life into her character Mrs. Edith Cortright and this role became her personal favorite. Walter Huston as Sam Dodsworth, growing away from his frivolous wife, meets American widow Edith Cortright (Mary Astor) aboard an ocean liner to Europe and starts an affair. There is a line of discoloration at the top left corner margin edge and there is a piece of paper missing on the blank white margin border near the top right corner. NEAR FINE.
