DescriptionThe Good Earth (MGM, 1937). Very Fine- on Linen. Three Sheet (41" X 79") Style B.
MGM Production Chief Irving Thalberg was keen to adapt Pearl S. Buck's novel with the greatest of realism--shooting in China and using all Chinese actors. But it was not to be. War, politics and the Hays Office forced Thalberg into casting Paul Muni and Luise Rainer as Wang Lung and O-Lan, and substituting Chatsworth, California for China. This was the last film Thalberg would work on. Touchup has been applied to fold wear, slight fold separations, minor tears, and unobtrusive stains in the borders. There are a few faint stains still visible in the credits and image. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $800 - $1,600.
