Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) sepia-tinted silver gelatin print still photo, USA. An exquisite portrait of the eccentric actress at her loveliest, taken upon her entrance into sound films in 1931 after years of success on the stage. It was George Cukor and Paramount who brought her back into films after an unsuccessful stab at them in 1918 (and one U.K. film in 1928). The first film in the contract (TARNISHED LADY) was made at Paramount's Astoria Studio in New York. After, she boarded the train to Hollywood -- mainly, as she stated, to get her hands on the divine Gary Cooper. Her films overall did not do well, and back to the stage she went, returning in 1944 for a hit film, LIFEBOAT. Information is typed on the back of the still and it was issued for foreign use by the New York Paramount Publix Corporation. Portrait is coded "P1246-27". There are two minor horizontal emulsion scratches present in Bankhead's hair, VERY GOOD. Bookseller Inventory #
