This is a photographic negative of a Holloywood Star base runner sliding home. The catcher is bending over to make the tag on the Star. The Star has his left hand on the ground and is sliding into the plate with his right leg. The umpire is looking over the play from the left side of the catcher. The photo was taken from the first base side of home plate and the third base coach and third baseman as well as the left field wall can be seen here.
