Silk Stockings

Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1957. Collection of 20 vintage still photographs from the 1957 film musical. 19 of the images are black-and-white, and 1 is sepia.

A musical remake of "Ninotchka," adapted for the stage by Kaufman, McGrath (then Mrs. Kaufman), and Burrows, with music and lyrics by Cole Porter. The play and the subsequent fine film version kept most of the Cold War humor of the 1939 Lubitsch original intact. And Peter Lorre dances!

8 x 10 inches (three photos cropped for press use, thus slightly smaller). A couple of photos with minor wear at one edge, else Near Fine.

Hirschhorn, p. 358.
