Cat. #000422112: OLGA BACLANOVA

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly rare vintage 5x7-inch sepia-tone portrait, dating to the late 1920s, when which she generally signed only as "Baclanova," as was her custom, boldly signed with both her first and last names in black fountain pen. In fine condition for its age. Luscious Russian-born leading lady Olga Baclanova is remembered by horror buffs for her starring roles in The Vampyre Woman (1915), The Man Who Laughs (1928) and-- of course!-- Tod Browning’s Freaks (1932), in which she was so brutally transformed into the squawking Chicken Lady by the sideshow troupe after double-timing one of their own.
