    Description

    Joan Crawford by Ruth Harriet Louise (MGM, 1920s). Portrait Still (10" X 13").
    Vintage black and white, double weight, satin finish still. Joan Crawford was making herself into one of MGM's most powerful stars by the late 1920s, and with her angular features and professional attitude, she was a favorite subject among the studio's photographers. Ruth Harriet Louise captured many daring and glamorous images of this up-and-coming star, and this is one of the most striking of any of her portraits. The still is in superb condition with only light edge wear and a corner crease. Recto: Ruth Harriet Louise embossed blind stamp. Verso: MGM/Louise credit stamps. Very Fine+.
