    Description

    Anna Karenina (MGM, 1935). Fine/Very Fine. Half Sheet (22" X 28").
    This was the second time that Leo Tolstoy's novel had been brought to the silver screen, and this version is usually regarded as the better. The great Greta Garbo reprised her role (she played the same character opposite John Gilbert in the 1927 silent feature, "Love") as the sheltered wife of a Czarist official. A tremendous supporting cast included: Fredric March a dashing military officer and Anna's lover, Basil Rathbone as her cruel husband, and Freddie Bartholomew as her adoring son. Director Clarence Brown had the daunting task of condensing 900 pages of complicated characterizations, dialogue, and plot twists into a mere 95 minutes on the silver screen. Brown had become Garbo's favorite director, working with her on several of her finest productions such as Flesh and the Devil, A Woman of Affairs, and the actress' first talkie, Anna Christie. This film is arguably the finest accomplishment that teamed the talented star and director. The poster shows edge wear, small tears, as well as light stains and smudges. There is a moderate chip in top right corner, a minor chip in the top left corner, and a sliver of paper loss along the lower left border. The poster also has a couple of dust shadows towards the top edges and a piece of plastic tape on the verso bracing a tear in the left border. Fine/Very Fine.
