BLONDE VENUS (1932)

Paramount 8 x 10” still photo. A lovely moment in the film wherein Marlene Dietrich as Helen, is re-united with lover Nick (Cary Grant), in this tour de force opus. One of the finest and most entertaining of the von Sternberg/Dietrich teaming, her character runs the gamut of simple country girl, wealthy married socialite, night club singer, vagrant, prostitute, Paris cabaret singer, celebrity--- and all in 90 minutes. She is wife, mother and lover too. Of course Dietrich pulled the entire charade off beautifully, as she displays in this well lit moment. Blurb information at bottom margin. A single weight glossy silver gelatin print. It is very rare to find any images from this film of Dietrich with Cary Grant.
