The Turning Point
Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1977. Vintage photograph of director Herbert Ross and actor Shirley Maclaine on the set of the 1977 film. Holograph annotations on the verso.
A film made at what was arguably the maturation point for the Women's Liberation movement that began in the mid-late 1960s, in which MacLaine and Bancroft play former dance colleagues whose lives have gone separate ways (one became and professional dancer, the other a settled domestic life), and whose unexpected reunion yields dramatic consequences. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Screenplay.
Shot on location in Oklahoma City.
8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
