Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0003861: MAUREEN ARTHUR

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather uncommon vintage 8x10-inch black and white glossy bust portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in fountain pen at the height of her career.  Light yellowing and a small tear to the bottom border, but in fairly good condition for its age.  The zaftig blonde comic actress gained fame in the early 1960s, doing a dead-on impersonation of Marilyn Monroe on television variety programs, talk shows and commercials until the real Monroe's demise in 1962.  Thereafter, she trafficked in dumb-broad types, including secretary Hedy LaRue in How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying (1967), Lois Grey in How to Commit Marriage (1969) and the oversexed, middle-aged graduate student Zelka on T.V.'s "Mork and Mindy" (1981-1982).
