Why We Love This

Published in Vanity Fair in January 1934, this photograph shows Leslie Howard, a minor, gentlemanly British stage actor who came across the pond in 1920. Soon, he was embraced in America as a "Saxon idol" and "local hero," and as Vanity Fair put it, "one of the largest items of America's ever-mounting post-war dramatic debt to England." The magazine's editors asked photographer Edward Steichen to capture the Howard mystique just as the actor was about to begin shooting a series of high-profile productions in 1934: British Agent (for Michael Curtiz), Of Human Bondage (with Bette Davis), and The Scarlet Pimpernel. Leslie Howard's money roles would come in 1939.

This beautiful silver gelatin print comes with an option of a black or white frame.

This print is part of a limited-edition selection by Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter and his team, of a photograph taken from the magazine’s archives. Revamped by Condé Nast in 1914, Vanity Fair has published the writings and photographs of some of the great American luminaries, including Edward Steichen and Cecil Beaton. Each print in this edition is stamped and numbered.
