From the movie Gone with the Wind, this print was made especially for Warner Brothers' publicist Robert S. Taplinger. Warner Brothers had lent Olivia de Havilland to the GWTW project. This is not the typical still that you see on the market. It is oversized, on good double-weight semi-matt paper (rather than the glossies you usually see), of high quality and uncropped for the 70mm film version that came in in 1951; it also passes the blacklight test, all lending credibility to it being made prior to 1955. Both Clarence Bull and Fred Parrish took the still photography for Gone with the Wind. The image is at the ball where Rhett and Scarlet scandalize the officers and their wives. She still wears her "widow's weeds." See: Gardner and Gardner, Pictorial History of Gone with the Wind, p.153. Provenance: estate of Robert S. Taplinger.Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax.
