Madam Satan waltz, 1930

Kay Johnson and Reginald Denny photographed by Manatt. Special photography for Cecil B. DeMille’s bizarre musical comedy, Madam Satan. The paper caption on reverse describes the image as Kay Johnson and Reginald Denny performing the Madam Satan waltz, aboard the Zeppelin. The photo attempts to create a more fantasy intense mood for the film since it was actually a very light comedy about an attempt by a wife, donning a disguise, to re-seduce her husband into submission. | src Heritage Auctions | view related post, here
