Cat. #000458131: FLORENCE BATES

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage black fountain pen signature on a 4x5-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collectors Rose and Irene Gellar in 1949, and decorated with a small Players Directory image. Gorgeous actress Kristine Miller signs and inscribes in black fountain pen on the verso. In good condition, with a square-shaped patch of toning in the lower left-hand corner and a minute fleck of soiling to the upper edge. Indomitable character actress Florence Bates played snooty society matrons, and silver-tongued relatives and wives in films like Rebecca (1940), Strange Alibi (1941), The Tuttles of Tahiti (1942), The Moon and Sixpence (1942), Kismet (1944), Saratoga Trunk (1945), I Remember Mama (1948), Portrait of Jennie (1948), A Letter to Three Wives (1949), County Fair (1950), and On the Town (1949).
