A Vandamm Studio proof featuring Katharine Hepburn as Jane Eyre and Dennis Hoey as Mr. Rochester from the 1936-1937 Theatre Guild touring production of Helen Jerome's adaptation of Brontë's novel. This image is a copy of 8.1.63. In January 2006, this proof was washed to test whether it might possible to conserve this set of proofs. Although it is now in a stable condition, the loss of image contrast led Collections staff to abandon any plans of washing any others from the collection.
This image is part of a larger digital database of photographs from the Theresa Helburn Theatre Guild Photography Collection. Ability to view certain images is restricted to Tri-College patrons. For a description of the collection, please go to http://www.brynmawr.edu/library/speccoll/guides/helburn
