THE SLANT BOARD

Myrna Loy

What a useful and necessary piece of studio equipment. Not only helping the stars to relax between takes, THE SLANT BOARD also kept costumes wrinkle-less .

Sometimes  it was extremely difficult to sit anyway – check out Jean  Harlow’s white satin dress in “Dinner at Eight.”!

Constance Bennett, Gregory La Cava.THE AFFAIRS OF CELLINI – apparently the first time the slant board was used.
