    Marian Marsh Stills from "Crime and Punishment." Columbia's Crime and Punishment, Dostoyevsky's classic a la 1935 Hollywood and director Josef von Sternberg, is an offbeat and ultimately moving film. Surely Marian Marsh rarely if ever looked so radiantly attractive as she did via the von Sternberg "treatment," as this packet of five original 8" x 10" stills from the film proves. The matte finish photos present Marian with co-stars Peter Lorre, Edward Arnold, Tala Birell, and two children; there's also a great cast shot, with Marian, Lorre, Arnold, Birell, and featured players Elisabeth Risdon and Douglass Dumbrille. All bear the stamp on the reverse, "Photo by Irving Lippman Columbia Studios." There are some minor smudges at the top of the picture of Marian with the children, and lesser ones on a shot of Arnold, Birell, Lorre and Marian; otherwise in Excellent condition. From the Marian Marsh Archive.
