Cat. #000422112: OLGA BACLANOVA

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly rare vintage 8x10-inch sepia-tone portrait, dating to the late 1920s, boldly signed in black fountain pen as "Baclanova," as was her custom in that era. In good condition. 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.
