Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) sepia-toned double weight matte finish print still photo, USA. Greta Garbo, Melvyn Douglas, Ina Claire, Bela Lugosi, Sig Ruman, dir: Ernst Lubitsch; MGM. Greta Garbo had one of her finest roles ever in the light sophisticated comedy directed by master Ernst Lubitsch. For once, she was allowed to let loose. She plays an ice queen sent from Russia to Paris to oversee three colleagues sent to sell the Grand Duchess jewels. While there, she falls in love. The original ad campaign for the film was "Garbo laughs!" That was news after years of tragic dramas. The world was going to war and lighter fare was the mode of the day, so MGM did their best to reinvent the great dramatic star. She was given a top notch script by Charles Brackett, Billy Wilder and Walter Reisch. That script was nominated by the Academy, as was Garbo, and the picture itself. For this lovely portrait by Clarence Bull, Garbo displays the lightness in character of Ninotchka. His blind stamp is at the lower left of the portrait and his ink stamp is present on the back. There are a couple of unobtrusive light smudges in dark background area, NEAR FINE. Bookseller Inventory # 10218
