    Good Girls Go to Paris (Columbia, 1939). (40" X 60") Photo Gelatin. Born into a vaudeville family, Joan Blondell was a star in the Ziegfeld Follies by the time she was seventeen. Her first roles opposite James Cagney in the early thirties in such greats as "Public Enemy" brought wealth to Warner Brothers and fame to Cagney but Blondell could never break the stereotype of the cheap, happy-go-lucky, gold-digger, which is exactly the role she played in this Columbia comedy. In later years, Joan Blondell ruefully recalled that the film's original title was "Good Girls Go To Paris,Too", but the Hays Office nixed that harmlessly suggestive moniker. Offered here is a tremendously rare 40" X 60" from Blondell's first starring vehicle after leaving Warners. Rolled, Very Fine-.
