    Description

    Monta Bell (MGM, 1925). Autographed Photo (10.25" X 13.5"). Silent Film.
    Vintage gelatin silver, double weight, matte finish photo. This great very scare portrait of an early silent producer and director Monta Bell, was autographed to columnist Louella Parsons in 1925. Bell had just directed Marion Davies in Lights of Old Broadway. The following year he would direct perhaps his best known work, Greta Garbo's Torrent. An unrestored photograph with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have edge wear with tears, slight paper loss, a punch in the left center image, minor stains, and/or some corner bumps and creases. Mr. Bell has inscribed the photograph: "To You, Louella, With a bow to your gracious encouragement. Monta Bell, 1925." Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine+.
