    Marian Marsh Personal Scrapbook. This was Marian Marsh's personal scrapbook, tracing her rise (and eventual eclipse) as a major movie star. The book is bulging with material (literally layers of clippings per page) beginning in 1930, with her appearance in the play Young Sinners, to the Christmas Eve announcement of her winning the role of Trilby in John Barrymore's Svengali, followed by voluminous 1931 clippings on Svengali, magazine and newspaper ads, reviews, and a 14-page newspaper published by Warner Bros. and devoted to the film, as well as Five Star Final and The Mad Genius, coverage of her selection as a 1931 "Wampas Baby Star"; color covers of Marian from Modern Screen, Screen Book, Silver Screen and more. The scrapbook contains about 50 pages, measures approximately 11" x 15" and survives not only as colorful testimony to Marian's most palmy days of stardom, but also a documentation of her career decline. The clippings (many over 75 year sold) are brittle here and there, but intact, with terrific material on every page, and are in overall Very Good condition. A genuine treasure-trove of Golden Age cinema pictures, stories and promotion, kept by the lady who experienced it all. From the Marian Marsh Archive.
