    "Anthony Adverse" Shots. When Jack L. Warner received the suggestion to film Anthony Adverse, Hervey Allen's 1,200-page novel, he responded, "Read it? I can't even lift it!" Yet Warner proceeded, producing this lavish 18th century historical costumer starring Fredric March and Olivia de Havilland and directed by Mervyn LeRoy. The epic was a Best Picture Academy Award contender in 1936 (losing to MGM's The Great Ziegfeld), winning four Oscars (Best Supporting actress for Gale Sondergaard, Best Cinematography, Best Musical score and Best Editing). This is a lot of eight beautiful 11x14 stills from Anthony Adverse, capturing the film's lushly romantic quality. Shot One: a wonderful storybook-style pose of doomed lovers Maria (Anita Louise) and Dennis (Louis Hayward) having a rendezvous at a mill. Shot Two: a chilling pose of villain Don Luis (Claude Rains) confronting Maria in her bed as he brandishes a candle. Shot Three: A scene of the duel between Don Luis and Dennis, as Maria and others watch. Shot Four: a pose of little Anthony (Bill Mauch) visiting little Florence (Marilyn Knowlden) and her mother (Marjorie Gateson). Shot Five: a charming exterior still of Anthony (Fredric March) and Angela (Olivia de Havilland) riding in a donkey-drawn cart. Shot Six: a pose of Anthony with the adult Florence (Alma Lloyd) and her mother. Shot Seven: an expansive scene of an opera being performed, featuring de Havilland in the shot. Shot Eight: A profile-to-profile reunion of Anthony and Angela. Each has a "layout in story form" attachment at the bottom of the still and each is stamped on the back August 13, 1936. Shots One though Four, as well as Seven and Eight, have some border wear and chips, and Shot Eight has lost its lower right corner and has a few spots of surface wear beside de Havilland's coiffure. Overall Very Good condition, and superb still artwork from one of Warner Bros.' major extravaganzas of the 1930s.
