1925 Incredibly risqué and famous image of actress Norma Shearer from her role as Frances White in the film "Pretty Ladies." She is wearing a see-through dress which has become famous among Hollywood pin-up collectors with this being the only original example we have ever seen in any form. There is a typed studio credit on the back and the photo is from the archive of famous Hollywood historian James Card. There is wear to the image including a rip at the lower right that could be restored, but overall the quality of the image in great. In twenty years of collecting, this is the ONLY vintage example of this highly sought after image that we know of to exist. Offered here for the first time ever!
