    Mae Clarke's Waterloo Bridge Still Photos. This excellent lot of 12 original b&w 8" x 10" Universal stills all feature Mae Clarke in director James Whale's controversial pre-Code classic Waterloo Bridge. A favorite of "Jimmy" Whale during his early career at Universal, Mae Clarke earned glowing reviews for her superb, heartbreaking performance in this film, which she followed up with two more projects for "the Ace of Universal," Frankenstein (1931) and Impatient Maiden (1932). Clarke also costarred in several hard-hitting Warner Bros. crime classics: The Public Enemy (1931) and Lady Killer (1933), in which she is accosted with a grapefruit and dragged by the hair, respectively, by James Cagney; and The Man with Two Faces (1934), with Edward G. Robinson. All 12 stills (one is a duplicate, one is trimmed to 8" x 8.75") feature Clarke in scenes with male lead Douglass Montgomery and players Frederick Kerr (the crusty old Baron in Frankenstein), Doris Lloyd, Enid Bennett, and Ethel Griffies. One has a 1" tear at right border; otherwise, they are in Fine to Very Fine condition.
