If it's a rights-managed photo from Getty Images (which these clearly are), then they have a complicated multi-part questionairre to figure out pricing for a particular type of usage of the photograph. In most cases, about the lowest you'll come up with for a high quality print or high resolution scan is a bit over $200... for just one photograph. Heck, just to get a low resolution image a bit over 400 pixels tall they'll charge you around $50 (again for a single photograph). This sort of pricing is the whole reason that all these other stock photo sites have come into being in recent years.

Awesome! I went to Getty images and there are even more on there that I found! A really cool one of Little Nell as Columbia during the floorshow from the London production. Lots of others too. I always love finding photos of the original production. We need all we can find, as they are the only document of the original show that we can have. Unless that video of the belasco production turns up.

Very cool. But my guess, from the hair and make up, is that these shots are from the Belasco, not the Roxy. I say that because of the shape to Curry's eyebrows (jagged rather than rounded), the shape of his hair, and the way the cheek bones are emphasized with a dark slash. Also Jamie Donnelly's hair is like Patricia Quinn's in the movie rather than the kind of Afro style she's wearing in most shots from L.A. Also the microphone heads are round rather than cylindrical and flat on top as they are in other Roxy shots.

Why am I pleased I recognize these things? It's not healthy...

He'd cut his hair short, died it black and pained a widow's peak over his bald spot. It's pretty cool. There's a photo the 15th Anniversary booklet.

I'm a total luddite, so wouldn't know how to scan (and don't have the technology). Browsing Google, I don't find a copy of it, which is odd. I'll see what I can do.
