This is a photo album containing 109 images from 31 well-known movies of the 1930s and early 1940s. Each photo was taken from the screen while the photographer was viewing the film inside a theater.
About three-quarters of the images have handwritten captions, mostly the year of the film or the name of the actor(s) seen in the shot, though a few have a brief synopsis of the scene. We see Ronald Reagan and Errol Flynn in Santa Fe Trail, and several photographs show scenes from the 1935 film Mutiny On The Bounty. There are a few shots from The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Dr. Kildare's Strange Case. Several of the films starred Wallace Beery; we see him with Lionel Barrymore and Ronald Reagan in The Bad Man, and with Leo Carrillo (best known as Pancho on The Cisco Kid) in the 1940 Western, 20 Mule Team. There is also a photo of a scene from Boom Town showing Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert.
A fantastic group of images depicting scenes from some of the major films of the 1930s and '40s. Near fine. Item #6097
