John Boles and Pat Patterson with Thelma Todd in BOTTOMS UP.
Original 7.5x9.75-inch black-and-white, glossy publicity photo / movie still was produced to promote the 1934 Fox pre-code comedy / musical film, BOTTOMS UP, which starred Spencer Tracy, Pat Paterson, John Boles, Sid Silvers, Herbert Mundin, Harry Green, Thelma Todd, Robert Emmett O'Connor, Dell Henderson, Suzanne Kaaren, Douglas Wood, Lucille Ball, Lynn Bari, June Gale, Barbara Pepper and Mariska Aldrich. The film was directed by David Butler. This is an original studio-issued still -- NOT a copy or reproduction. Title information is printed on the lower border. The photo features a great shot of Pat Paterson hugging Thelma Todd as John Boles waits beside a microphone. Overall condition: Solid VG+..... It appears that a quarter-inch may have been trimmed from all of the outside borders -- but this flaw does not affect the attractive image area. The still also has a few tiny pinholes near the corners and a few mild surface marks/bends. However, these minor flaws are not very distracting, and otherwise, the photo is clean and bright.
