    "Tower of London" Vintage Photos. Three orignal 8" x 10" photos from Universal's 1939 Tower of London, starring Basil Rathbone and Boris Karloff. One of that melodrama's best-remembered episodes is Rathbone's evil Richard III advancing his wicked schemes by arranging the marriage of two children, Baby Prince Richard (Donnie Dunagan) and little Lady Mowbray (Joan Carroll), and this lot showcases those three performers in pictures from Dunagan's personal collection. There's a wonderful candid shot of Rathbone walking hand-in-hand with Dunagan and Carroll; a charming full-length portrait of Dunagan in crown and costume; and a close-up of Dunagan and Carroll, both smiling for the photographer.The lot includes an additional copy of the last shot, so there are actually four photos included. The shot with Rathbone has some damage on the lower right border not touching the image and some marks on the reverse from having been pasted in Dunagan's scrapbook; two of the others have similar marks; one of the Dunagan and Carroll shots has its original snipe; in overall Very Fine condition. Vintage and ultra-rare original Universal horror items. From the Donnie Dunagan Archive.
