ABOUT THIS ITEM:
Vintage 1942 RKO promotional still photo pictures Dolores Costello.
Still numbered DC-396 at bottom right in negative. With RKO 1942 copyright information in bottom border.
Measures approximately 8-1/8" X 10-1/8 inches.
One of several RKO publicity shots of Costello currently being offered. Each is dated 1942. She signed with RKO in October 1941 to appear in Orson Welles' The Magnificent Ambersons, but given the homey theme of this and other photos from this set, I wouldn't be surprised if they were taken some time after the death of ex-husband John Barrymore in May of 1942 (Their children appear with Costello in several shots).
This sale is for the single photo described and shown above.
Some wear around the corners including some slight wrinkles/cracks near tips; lighter edge wear; A single spot of soiling and faint toning over back with pencil scribble as shown. See details in scans.

General Shipping Notes:
I ship six days per week.
Items ship next day after I receive notification of successful payment.
Sometimes it ships same day, depending upon the cut-off time and how busy my day is. But next day is guaranteed—you will have a shipping notification within 24 hours of placing your order, excluding Sundays.
Items are packed within hobby supplies and then protected by cardboard sheets and shipped flat. If you've ordered a lot of stuff, I might ship in a box instead. That will also have proper protection inside.
I buy a lot online, and I've always said I practice the Golden Rule when it comes to shipping—it's going out to you in the way I'd like to receive all of my packages.
If for some reason you are not happy with the item you've received, please contact me within 2 weeks or 14 days of receipt to arrange a return, though the sooner the better. Any refunds will be made through the same payment method you used to purchase.
I try my best to describe any flaws I see when listing and item and include an approximately measurement as well as images of both sides of items. My goal is for you to never have to take time to email me with a question or complaint, though I'm happy to answer all emails.
