JUNIOR LAEMMLE IN THE LOS ANGELES EXAMINER 1931


Carl "Junior" Laemmle was at the top of his game in 1931. Handed the helm of Universal Pictures by his father, he had an Oscar on his mantle for ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT, and a string of hit thrillers that included DRACULA and FRANKENSTEIN that drew theater patrons by the tens of thousands.

The photo shown here is a publicity portrait, shot by Universal staff photographer Roman Freulich and prepared for a cropped image to be pasted up in a July, 1931 edition of the LOS ANGELES EXAMINER. The reverse of the photo shows a portion of the clipping of the article as it appeared in the paper.
