    Description

    Anna Christie (MGM, 1930). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    Shot in only twenty days, Anna Christie was Greta Garbo's first sound film and was marketed with the slogan "Garbo Talks!" Of all its stars, "The Swedish Sphinx" was the one that MGM kept out of talking films the longest for fear she would not make the transition successfully like so many other actors. In fact, Garbo's English was so good by the time she appeared in this film, she had to add an accent in several retakes to sound like her Swedish title character. As for audience appeal, concerns proved unwarranted, as the actress entranced moviegoers and confirmed she would have no trouble succeeding where other silent era stars had failed. Critics were equally impressed, and the Academy rewarded Garbo with a Best Actress nomination for her role as the emotionally wounded, estranged daughter of an alcoholic skipper of a coal barge (George F. Marion). Artist William Galbraith Crawford brings a lightness to Garbo as Anna, a young woman haunted by dark secrets. An added bonus is the exceptional condition of this very rare stone litho one sheet -- only pinholes in the corners, a tear in the right border, and touchup to fold wear can be noted. Very Fine on Linen.
