    Description

    The Broadway Melody by Ruth Harriet Louise (MGM, 1929). Photos (12) (10" X 13").
    Vintage gelatin silver, double weight, glossy photos. This Oscar winning musical extravaganza stars Anita Page, Bessie Love, Charles King, and Kenneth Thomson. The first of the popular MGM films that feature behind-the-scenes peeks at Broadway and its stars, it was an instant hit in the early days of the talkies, and was also the first sound film to win a Best Picture Award. It features songs by Nacio Herb Brown and Arthur Freed and the grand George M. Cohan masterpiece "Give My Regards to Broadway." These glorious black and white photos by Ruth Harriet Louise each feature the talented and beautiful Bessie Love, three of which have the Texas born actress posing with vaudeville entertainer Charles King. Only a few show some minor toning. Verso: Studio/photographer stamp on all, studio typed snipe on eight. Very Fine+.
