The Importance of Being Earnest

N.p. J. Arthur Rank Organisation, 1952. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1952 film. Snipe affixed to the verso.

Based on Oscar Wilde's witty play of the same name, in which a Algernon discovers that his friend, Earnest, has created a fictional brother in order to intermittently leave his country home to visit the city. Algernon decides to assume the brother's identity and pay a little visit to his friend's estate. The film is a goofy and earnest rendition of Wilde's beloved play.

Shot on location in England.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus. Small stain to the recto and a holograph graphite notation to the verso.
