Description
76 album pages, each containing an 8 x 10-inch photograph depicting sets, performers, and concepts from live variety stage shows performed before feature films. These shows, known as "Ideas," were produced by the Los Angeles-based theatrical production team of Fanchon and Marco. The photographs document stages, often with ornate set designs, rehearsals, dance and musical numbers, costumes, and group and single portraits of dancers, musicians, and actors for shows performed from around 1931. No photographers are identified in this volume. The photographs were originally housed in a custom binder and comprise volume 7 of a 16-volume set that served as a visual inventory for hundreds of Fanchon & Marco performances.
Page titles based on handwritten identifications on photograph versos and a typescript inventory at the beginning of the album; album dates based on the dates of references to the Ideas in the Los Angeles Times. The page numbers reflect their original order in the binder.
