The Woman Disputed

Henry King, Sam Taylor (directors)
Denison Clift (play)
C. Gardner Sullivan (screenwriter)

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1928. Vintage studio still photograph from the 1928 silent film, showing actors Norma Talmadge and Gilbert Roland in a decidedly passionate moment.

Based on Denison Clift's 1926 play, in turn loosely based on Guy de Maupassant's 1880 story "Boule de Suif." A kind Austrian sex worker finds herself the subject of two men's competing romantic attentions on the eve of World War I. Considered by many to be the swan song of silent film star Talmadge, whose career would flag at the turn of the decade, with the arrival of sound pictures.

Set in Austria.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, lightly and evenly toned, with a few small chips to the corners and edges.
