    Henry Fonda and Rochelle Hudson Photo by George Hurrell. A breathtaking study by famed movie portrait photographer George Hurrell of Henry Fonda and Rochelle Hudson in Way Down East (1935). This was Henry's second film, made for Fox Studios when he was 30 years old. For fans familiar with his 45-plus-years film career and his later films, the actor's youth is almost startling here, and his potential for major stardom clearly evident in this profile pose. (Rochelle Hudson looks very attractive as well!) Good condition, with some small tears in the left border, a crease and little loss of emulsion in the upper right corner, and some surface creases; when held to the light, one can see the pencil handwriting en verso identifying the stars, film, studio, and producer (Winfield Sheehan); all these flaws overwhelmed by the overall impact of this beautiful picture. The reverse bears the stamp, "Please Credit Hurrell Hollywood." A fine example of Hurrell's classic artistry and a wonderful Henry Fonda study, prophetic of the legendary career that followed.
