Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1977. Vintage photograph of director Herbert Ross and actor Shirley Maclaine on the set of the 1977 film. Manuscript 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.
