Cat. #000422112: OLGA BACLANOVA

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly uncommon vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a clipped 4 x 4.75-inch portion of a biography from a playbill for a stage production of John Golden's "Claudia," acquired in-person at the time of the play-- especially uncommon in that it is signed with her full name, instead of simply "Baclanova", which was her custom. 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.
