1927 Portrait photograph of actress Clara Bow from the famous film "Wings" which would win the first ever Academy Award for "Best Picture" cementing it's place in Hollywood history. While we have sold images from this film in the past, this is the lone portrait of Bow from the film we have ever handled. Stamped on the back by famous photographer Eugene Robert Richee of Paramount Studios, the photo is a true piece of Hollywood history that is being offered here for the first time ever. There is wear and some discoloration to the image, but the rarity and importance more than make up for the issues.
