[Publicity Portrait Photograph of W. Somerset Maugham]
by Maugham, W. Somerset
[Culver City: Selznick Studio, 1941. Original 8 x 10" b&w silver print, glossy. About fine, with mimeographed snipe affixed to lower edge. About fine. An uncredited publicity portrait of Maugham circulated to the press on the occasion of public announcement of Maugham's having signed on to produce an original WWII screenplay for Selznick. The agreement was reached in 1941, and was to have involved 12 weeks of Maugham's work, but the project never reached completion, Selznick instead turning to work on SINCE YOU WENT AWAY as his contribution to the war effort. The seven- line squib announces Maugham's agreement with all hyperbole one would expect from a Hollywood publicist. (Inventory #: WRCLIT67595)
