Vintage original 8 x 10 in. US single-weight glossy photograph from the 1920's WWI-themed drama/romance, HEAVEN ON EARTH, released in 1927 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) and directed by Phil Rosen.


The image features an exterior close shot a young French woman, Marcelle (Renée Adorée), being held and kissed by Edmond Durand (Conrad Nagel) in front of a rustic country home. The verso features a printed caption that describes the image. It is in very fine-condition.

*"The 1 May 1926 Motion Picture News reported that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer changed the title from The Escape to Heaven on Earth.


Young Edmond Durand has been reared under the autocratic influence of his aunt, who directs a large silk mill in southern France. He revolts against a stifling career planned for him and leaves home with Marcelle, a Gypsy girl. They roam the countryside with a Gypsy caravan in romantic bliss; they are inadvertently separated but at the outbreak of war are reunited. When peace is restored, the lovers find happiness together."
