A dramatization of the rise to fame of Broadway producer and impresario Florenz Ziegfeld Jr. An extravagant, runaway production, with a massive budget, lavish sets, and costumes by noted designer Adrian. At the time of its release the film was the longest talking film of the time, running just over three hours. Nominated for seven Academy Awards, winning three, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Luise Rainer.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, lightly worn at the corners.
