Norma Shearer, Irving Thalberg at the White House. 1929
The one of Shearer and Thalberg is amazing, such a contemporary feel for being so long ago.
Don’t know what the occasion was. The colour seems to bring the figures to life so much more. Norma’s outfit is very much the 1920s. Thalberg could be from any decade.
Judging by the springtime feel of their dress, it could possibly have been the one and only inauguration of President Hoover in March of that year – however I’m not at all sure that Thalberg, particularly, would have supported Herbert in such a way!
Thanks for that information about the Herbert Hoover inauguration in 1929.
Boy Universal certainly gave Deanna the glamour treatment when she matured! As David Shipman says in The Great Movie Stars ‘overdressed and over made up’ .
It’s a beautiful portrait.
