Vintage original 8 x 10 in. US single-weight glossy photograph from the 1920's British aristocrat-turned-boxer comedy/romance, THE VICTOR, released in 1923 by Universal Pictures and directed by Edward Laemmle.
The image features an exterior shot of a park bench as a pretty but poor actress, Teddy Walters (Dorothy Manners), eats a doughnut from a bag while British aristocrat Cecil Fitzhugh Waring (Herbert Rawlinson) studies her through his monocle. It is in fine condition.
*"Based on the story, "Two Bells for Pegasus," by Gerald Beaumont, the Honorable Fitzhugh Waring, eldest son of Lord Waring, comes to America on his father's advice to marry Chiquita Jones, the daughter of P. Jones, a rich chewing gum baron, and save the family estate. Almost starving because he is too proud to carry out his original plan, Fitzhugh meets Teddy, a poor but pretty actress, who shares her meal of doughnuts with him. Fitzhugh becomes a prizefighter to earn some money and is so successful that he wins the British middleweight crown. The money saves Lord Waring's finances, and Fitzhugh gets the old man's approval of his marriage to Teddy."
