Black and white photo of Robert Cummings (on left) and Priscilla Lane (on right) in Alfred Hitchcock’s film “Saboteur”.

This black and white photo a man and woman is twice as wide as it is high. It is of a black haired man wearing a dark leather bomber style jacket and a blond woman in a light colored wool coat with notched lapels. They are standing in a room with vertical knotty pine paneling.

The man, on the left, stands facing the woman. His head, turned to his right, faces out at us. The man’s dark, slicked back hair is mussed and a short curling lock falls forward above his right eye. His dark eyes look toward the left. The closed lips of his mouth are set in a straight line. The lower portion of the man’s face is covered with the shadowy stubble of his beard and mustache. His arms, bent at the elbows are held straight out in front of his body. His fists are clenched.

Visible between his wrists are the bracelet of a set of handcuffs on his left wrist and the chain restraining his wrists. The edge of the right bracelet is barely noticeable just below the dark knit cuff of his jacket.

The woman, on the right, faces the man. Her body, angled gently to her left, turns slightly towards us as she leans toward the man. Her face is also turned a little towards her left as she faces out at us. Her light colored, widely opened eyes look straight ahead. Her full dark lips are barely parted. The woman’s wavy long blond hair is pulled up and back and rolled away from her face in a pompadour before it falls to rest in soft, billowy curls upon her shoulders. A wedge of a dark, collarless top can be seen in the open V between the pale lapels of her coat. She wears a sparkly pin on the left lapel.

In the photograph, both figures are seen from the chest up. The man is centered on the left side of the photo. The top of the man’s head is cropped by the top edge of the frame of the picture. The top of the woman’s blond hair comes up to the man’s eye level, two-thirds of the height of the picture. She is positioned just to the right of the center of the frame. Behind the couple, is a narrow shelf running along the wall. The few items on it are blurred and it is difficult to make out exactly what they are. The shelf ends at a corner behind the woman. On the wall behind and to the right of the woman is a large framed drawing of a bird. The bird’s breast, neck and head are visible behind the upper right of the woman’s head. The white background of the picture is framed by a black mat and dark grey frame. To the right of the picture is a narrow sliver of a window with a dark frame is visible. A plaid curtain covers the window.
