Description Lot 85

Massive Collection of (134) vintage 8 x 10 in. studio negatives of Rita Hayworth covering her entire prime period in film, plus (1) 2 1/4 in. from her late career. Includes entire sequences of hair, makeup and product test and publicity sessions, plus a detailed sequence with Orson Welles as she goes blonde for him to appear in Lady from Shanghai. Quite likely the largest existing archive of original studio portrait negatives for this iconic star. Majority are safety stock (though several are nitrate) with hand-numbering in India ink, and condition varies with occasional corner chipping, slight waving, or other signs of age and use like border masking and retouching for print. Overall very good to fine.
