Cat. #00112141: LAURA HOPE CREWS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Incredibly scarce vintage 8x10-inch black and white portrait as Ernst's aunt in The Road Back (1937), boldly signed and inscribed in-person to inveterate collector Joe Podlipsky.  In good condition, with a few negligible handling dings, and ideal for display.  On stage from age four, Crews blossomed into a lovely leading lady and entered films in 1915.  In her fifties and sixties, she found new work as a character actress, playing eccentric matrons in films like Camille (1936), Angel (1937), The Blue Bird (1940), and The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942).  She is best remembered for her portrayal of Scarlett's dizzy Aunt Pittypat in Gone With the Wind (1939).
