Dolores Costello 1942 8x10 RKO Still Photo DC-456 w/DeeDee + John Drew Barrymore
ABOUT THIS ITEM:
Vintage 1942 RKO promotional still photo pictures Dolores Costello with children DeeDee and John Drew Barrymore, whose backs are to us as they sit at the piano.
Still numbered DC-456 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).
Just short creases near three of the corner tips with light wear around edges of corners; faint toning over back. See details in scans.
