Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1935. Vintage studio still photograph and vintage reference photograph from the 1935 film. One photograph shows Victor Jory in a dazzling sequined costume and twig crown as Oberon, and the other shows Jory with actress Anita Louise as Titania. Mimeo snipe affixed to the verso of one photograph, and both with manuscript pencil and ink cropping annotations on the verso.

From the archive of film historian and author Joel Finler.

Based on the classic 1595 play, about the strange and fantastical events surrounding the marriage of the Duke of Athens and the Queen of the Amazons. The film debut of Olivia de Havilland.

Very Good plus, with moderate edgewear and toning, and one with pinholes at the corners.
