Nothing Sacred

Beverly Hills, CA: Selznick International / United Artists, 1937. Vintage oversize, borderless, double weight photograph from the set of 1937 screwball comedy, showing a fainting Carole Lombard being carried out of a night club by Frederic March and Walter Connolly, while director William Wellman and a large crew look on.

Based on the 1937 short story "Letter to the Editor" by James H. Street, first published in "Cosmopolitan" magazine, about a woman who incorrectly (but hopefully) believed she was dying, and keeps up the illusion when she meets a reporter looking to do a story on her. The first screwball comedy to be shot in color, and Lombard's only color film.

13 x 9.75 inches (33 x 25 cm). Very Good plus. Lightly curled, with light diagonal creasing to a couple of corners, and a jagged one inch tear repaired with cello tape on the verso.
