Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1933. Vintage studio still photograph of John Barrymore, Carole Lombard, and Walter Connolly, from the 1933 film.
Based on the 1932 play by screenwriters Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur, which itself was based on the unproduced play "Napoleon of Broadway" by Charles Bruce Millholland. An egomaniacal theatre impressario attempts to manipulate everyone around him to reclaim his glory, as well as the affections of the histrionic diva, now heading to Hollywood, that he helped create.
8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with several pinholes.
