SALUTE TO THE MARINES

SALUTE TO THE MARINES. Vintage 10×8 glossy color-tinted lobby still from MGM’s 1943 helping of patriotic pablum, boldly signed in fountain pen by co-stars Wallace Beery, Fay Bainter, and Marilyn Maxwell, the latter two inscribing to Jimmy. Fine condition, with a light bend in the bottom right corner, not touching the image, and a larger, but faint, bend in the top right corner, intruding into the background but not substantially detracting from the overall appearance of the image. Nice signature combination, but one would have had to be suffering from severe shell shock to believe that dainty Fay Bainter could have been swept off her feet by uber-slob Wallace Beery and that the couple had produced pert pinup Marilyn Maxwell as their offspring.
