Original British 9 3/4 inch x 7 3/4 inch Still of CELIA JOHNSON & TREVOR HOWARD in the 1946 David Lean Romantic Drama BRIEF ENCOUNTER, based on the play “Still Life” by Noël Coward.
After a chance meeting on a train platform, a married doctor (Trevor Howard) and a suburban housewife (Celia Johnson) begin a muted but passionate, and ultimately doomed, love affair. With its evocatively fog-enshrouded setting, swooning Rachmaninoff score, and pair of remarkable performances (Johnson was nominated for an Oscar), this film deftly explores the thrill, pain, and tenderness of an illicit romance, and has influenced many a cinematic brief encounter since its release.
The still is in very good condition with a brief synopsis tacked to the reverse.
