Conquest [Madame Walewska]
Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1937. Vintage reference photograph from the set of the 1937 film, showing a camera crew filming a ballroom scene with actors Greta Garbo and Charles Boyer. With a mimeo snipe on the verso noting the film's working title, "Madame Walewska."
Based on Waclaw Gasiorowski's 1933 novel "Pani Walewska," which was in turn based on the true story of Countess Marie Walewska, who began an affair with Napoleon in the hope of gaining influence and power for Poland.
Set in France and Poland.
10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with light creasing to the bottom left corner and brief separation to the bottom right corner.
