Twentieth Century

Inevitably, a film of Garrick’s life was made: The Great Garrick, in 1937, starring Olivia de Havilland and Brian Aherne. The film creates a fictitious episode in which Garrick triumphs over a plot by actors of the Comédie Française to shame him during his Grand Tour visit to Paris. This theater lobby card, used to promote the film, came on the market as we were preparing this exhibition.


For more on Garrick's trip to Paris and the Comédie Française, jump to Grand Tourist in the online exhibition.
