About This Item

N.p.: N.p., 1948. Vintage photograph of actress Joan Blondell and her husband, theater and film producer, Mike Todd, circa 1948.

Blondell and Todd were married in 1947, Blondell's third and final marriage, and Todd's second, in a famously tempestuous and short-lived relationship. During the marriage Todd went through a well publicized bankruptcy, having lost hundreds of thousands of dollars to gambling, and was accused by Blondell of holding her by the ankles outside of a hotel window. The marriage ended in an acrimonious divorce in 1950. In 1957 Todd married Elizabeth Taylor, and died in a plane crash the following year, the only one of eight marriages of Taylor's that did not end in divorce.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, with light creasing to the top right corner.
