Claudette Colbert Signed 1934 “Cleopatra” Oversize Photo

We sold this item at auction for $682
 in December 22.

This stunning vintage oversize photo is a costume portrait of Claudette Colbert as she appeared in 1934’s “Cleopatra”. Colbert has autographed the photo in ink.

In the studio portrait, Colbert wears a revealing costume designed by Travis Banton. Colbert’s version of “Cleopatra” received five Academy Award nominations and ultimately won the Oscar for Best Cinematography. Directed by the legendary Cecil B. DeMille, the movie was the first of his many classics to receive a nomination for Best Picture.

“Cleopatra” was produced on the cusp of Hollywood’s strict Motion Picture Production Code which enforced decency in films, and as such, managed to slip in some risque elements that only appeared in earlier pre-code movies.
