Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1938. Vintage reference photograph from the 1938 film. With annotation in manuscript ink noting the film's title on the border of the recto, and a stamp on the recto identifying the film, actors, and studio, as well as the film's release date.

Loosely based on the life of composer Johann Strauss II. A musician is fired from his clerical job leading him to pursue music, eventually becoming the most celebrated composer in Vienna even by the Kaiser, despite his musical roots in revolutionary politics.

Set in 1845 Vienna, shot on location in Chico, California.

10 x 8 inches. Very Good plus, with pinholes and slight creasing at the corners.
