Eileen Darby Photo Assignments

Anna Lucasta June 21, 1944
Successful American Negro Theatre production about a prostitute (Hilda Simms) who is redeemed by the unconditional love of her husband (Earle Hyman). The performances of the family members gained repeated praise from the critics, in particular Canada Lee, Rosetta LeNoire, Frederick O'Neal, and Alice Childress. Several cast members made notable achievements later in their careers, including O'Neal who became the first black president of the Actors' Equity Association, and Hyman who became very well known in the 1980's as Russell Huxtable on "The Cosby Show".

The Late George Apley circa 1944
A George S. Kaufman comedy hit starring Leo G. Carroll as the title character, an ultra-conservative resisting change in 1912 getting by with his wit and a drink. Based on the Pulitzer Prize novel by John P. Marquand and produced by Max Gordon, the play was universally well received by the critics and playgoers.

The Old Vic April 1946
In March of 1946 Eileen Darby embarked on a photo assignment to cover several productions taking place at the well known Shakespearean theatre The Old Vic in London. The images notably include Sir Laurence Olivier in Oedipus, as well as productions of Henry IV and The Critic. The images were combined into a photo story for LIFE magazine, including the cover page featuring Margaret Leighton, which was published May 6th, 1946.
