Cat. #00052032: MADGE BLAKE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Ultra-rare handwritten, autographed personal check, given to a family member in 1960. In good condition, with banking cancellation punch holes, not affecting the autograph, and a few pink rubber stamp markings. Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the signed piece is not included. Plump, excitable character actress Madge Blake entered acting at the age of 50, following a government career. Memorable in supporting parts in films like Adam's Rib (1949), (1951), An American in Paris (1951), Singin' in the Rain (1951), The Long, Long Trailer (1953), and Brigadoon (1954), it was on television that she found lasting fame, in the roles of Margaret Mondello on "Leave It to Beaver" (1958-1960) and Aunt Harriet Cooper on "Batman" (1966-1967).
