The Green Pastures

Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, Circa 1936. Vintage reference photograph from the 1936 film.

Based on the 1930 Pulitzer Prize winning play by Marc Connelly, based in turn on "Ol' Man Adam an' His Chillun," a 1928 collection of pseudo African American folk tales by Roark Bradford. One of only a handful of films to feature an all-Black cast made by a major Hollywood studio during the Golden Age, becoming the highest grossing such film, and remaining so until surpassed by "Carmen Jones" in 1954.

9.5 x 7 inches. Very Good plus, with pinholes at the corners and light toning overall.
