1950 Large portrait photograph of Jackie Robinson looking dapper and happy as his new film "The Jackie Robinson Story" was about to hit theatres. This is perhaps his best studio shot in street clothes we have ever seen and one of the few that shows to show Jackie in a genuinely happy mood that we have ever seen. The photo some creasing from news-room handling but it looks nice and is the first example we have ever handled of this image!
