Cat. #00052323: MARY BOLAND

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage 8x10-inch black and white matte-finish portrait as Little Bo Peep in Melody in Spring (1934), boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen at the time of the film. In good condition. Apart from over thirty Broadway appearances during the course of a five-decade career, prolific character actress Mary Boland found time to perform in dozens of films throughout the 1930s and 1940s, memorably typecast as addle-brained wives or society matrons. She was frequently paired with Charlie Ruggles, but appeared to better effect in such films as Ruggles of Red Gap (1935), The Women (1939) and Pride and Prejudice (1940).
