Featured is a rare, early portrait photograph of Norma Shearer in flapper, dancehall cigarette girl from the 1927 film After Midnight. This comes from Shearer's personal collection, and was taken from a series of antique scrapbooks in which she kept a set of photographs from her early roles. Even for her, they were hard to come by, and many of the photographs in the scrapbooks seem to have been researched and rediscovered by Thalberg and Shearer after their marriage.
This image in particular is nearly impossible to come by, and it is a wonderful addition to any collection of Old Hollywood, jazz age photography or Norma Shearer memorabilia.
Just wonderful in concept, execution, and provenance. 100% guaranteed original and vintage.
