This is an original press photo. Cornell garnered the nickname of "First Lady of the Theatre," a title also bestowed upon her friend Helen Hayes, though each deferred the honor to the other.[1] Cornell is noted for her major Broadway roles in serious dramas, often directed by her husband, Guthrie McClintic. The couple formed a production company, which gave them complete artistic freedom in choosing and producing plays. Their production company gave first or prominent Broadway roles to some of the more notable actors of the 20th century, including many British Shakespearean actors. Cornell was noted for spurning screen roles, unlike other actresses of her day, appearing in only one Hollywood film, Stage Door Canteen (1943), in which she played herself. Cornell is regarded as one of 20th century Broadway's greatest leading ladies.Photo measures 8.5 x 6.75inches. Photo is dated 12-10-1940.
