Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Evocative original press photograph of Selznick International Pictures filming their 1936 movie The Garden of Allah in the midst of a real-life sandstorm. The caption on the verso reads: "Terrific heat, blinding sandstorms, shifting dunes which made transportation difficult were only three of the location problems handled by the David O. Selznick Company. In one instance, however, nature lent kindly assistance. Here a snadstorm scene is being filmed, with an actual storm in progress. Several huge wind machines, transported hundreds of miles for this, were rendered useless, as well as proving quite puny in comparison with Nature's own show." Several cropping marks to the image and light wrinkling; otherwise in very good condition overall. 10 x 8 inches (25.5 x 20.6 cm).The second venture for Selznick International Pictures, The Garden of Allah starred Marlene Dietrich and Charles Boyer as a star-crossed couple wandering through the North African desert.
