Dolores Costello Vintage 1942 8x10 RKO Promotional Still Photo DC-386
ABOUT THIS ITEM:
Vintage 1942 RKO promotional still photo pictures Dolores Costello.
Still numbered DC-386 at bottom right in negative. With RKO 1942 copyright information in bottom border.
Measures approximately 8-1/8" X 10 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).
Tiny bend near each of the corner tips, slightly longer at top right; faint cracks/crazing to glossy surface best seen when tilting photo under light; some faint soiling in top border area; a couple specks of soiling and faint toning over back with a pencil notation in middle as shown. See details in scans.
