FURY (1936)


Vintage original 10 x 8" (25 x 20 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Sylvia Sidney, Spencer Tracy, Walter Abel, Bruce Cabot, Walter Brennen, Frank Albertson, dir: Fritz Lang. MGM. The story of a prisoner left for dead by a lynch mob who ruthlessly decides to frame the mob for his murder.

The story is based on an actual incident which occurred in San Jose, CA, in 1933 when a lynching took place at a jail of the murderers of a popular local man. Made at the time of the Nazi uprising and just after Fritz Lang had escaped Germany, the film had a strong political tone. This was Lang's first film in America. The original story by Norman Krasna was nominated for an Academy Award.

All original paper from this film is quite rare. Spencer Tracy and Sylvia Sidney enact a tense moment from the story for this Clarence Bull ink stamped (on verso) portrait. This would be Sylvia Sidney's only film at MGM. Actor's names written neatly on verso. Remnants of adhesive of original publicity blurb. Still is coded 911 x 12. Minor corner handling, tiny crease to top left corner, NEAR FINE.
