Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Vintage bold pencil signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1939 and decorated with a small magazine image. Outspoken, beautiful Constance Bennett, the first of the Bennett sisters to enter films, first established herself in silents, most notably Cytherea in 1924. After a brief hiatus from Hollywood during a marriage which ultimately failed, she reemerged during the early talkie era, typically cast as loose ladies, unwed mothers or sophisticated, witty types, most memorably in The Affairs of Cellini (1934), Ladies in Love (1936), Topper (1937), Topper Takes a Trip (1938), and Merrily We Live (1938). She died tragically of a cerebral hemorrhage at the age of 60.
