    Description

    "Anthony Adverse" Shots. A second lot of eight beautiful 11x14 stills, numbered Nine through Thirteen and Fifteen through Seventeen, from Warner Bros.'s 1936 Academy Award for Best Picture contestant Anthony Adverse. Still Nine shows Anthony (Fredric March) and the "seductive housekeeper" Faith (Gale Sondergaard, who won the Academy's first Best Supporting Actress prize for this performance) with the Madonna-style doll left with him at the orphanage. Still Ten is an expansive set exterior, showing Anthony on a ship at a port with Captain Jorham (Joseph Crehan). Still Eleven pictures a dissipating Anthony in Africa, involved in the slave trade, with Ferdinando (Paul Sotoff) and "voluptuous native woman" Neleta (Steffi Duna). Still Twelve shows Anthony at the jungle trading post with natives and slaves. Still Thirteen is a group scene featuring Napoleon (played by Rollo Lloyd - Warner Bros. newcomer Humphrey Bogart had tested for this role!). Still Fifteen shows Anthony and Angela with their son. Still Sixteen shows Anthony and Angela profile to profile, and Still Seventeen features Anthony and his son shipboard and leaving France. Each still has a caption attached at the bottom and is stamped on the back August 13, 1936. The stills have some border wear and chips, but are in overall Very Good condition and are handsome mementos of one of Warner Bros.' major Golden Age epics.
