Oscar won for the 1939 classic film, "Wuthering Heights," given to Gregg Toland for Black and White Cinematography, the only Academy Award that "Wuthering Heights" took home. Samuel Goldwyn produced and William Wyler directed the film, adapted to the screen from the Emily Bronte novel of the same name. Laurence Olivier, Miles Mander, Flora Robson, and Merle Oberon starred. This was the only Oscar won by Gregg Toland, though he earned nominations numerous times, including once for his work on "Citizen Kane," which owes much of its status as a frontrunner in visual style innovation to Toland's contribution of deep-focus techniques. Gold-plated statue standing on a film reel measures 10.5" tall, and 12" tall when the base is included. Base diameter measures 5.25" and total award weighs 7 pounds 5 ounces. The plaque on the base reads, "Academy First Award / To / Gregg Toland / For Black-and-White Cinematography of / 'Wuthering Heights'". Minor scratching to gold plating with a chip to reel center. A stunning tribute to "Wuthering Heights" and Toland in near fine condition.
