Original photograph of Albert Einstein and his wife Elsa, on a film set, 1931

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1931. Vintage photograph of Albert Einstein and his wife Elsa on a Warner Brothers film set, February 3, 1931.

In early 1931, Einstein and his wife visited several studios and sets to see European directors at work. Here, Einstein, his wife (sitting at his left) and cinematographer J. Peverell Marley sit in at a screening for the 1931 French language version of "The Big House," in France titled "Revolte dans la prison." As this is a prison film, a number of actors in the photo are wearing prison jackets. 

Jacques Feyder was the original director of the French version, and Pal Fejos and George W. Hill are credited for it as well.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus with light creasing at the corners.
