Cat. #000526: ADRIAN BOOTH

Uncommon vintage 8x10-inch sepia-tone portrait, boldly signed in blue ink, circa 1950.  In good condition, with gentle corner wear.  The lovely fashion model-turned-actress was billed as Lorna Gray prior to 1945, memorable in Three Stooges and Buster Keaton comedy shorts, and a long string of B-movies, including Smashing the Spy Ring (1938), The Man They Could Not Hang (1939) with Boris Karloff, Flying G-Men (1939), Convicted Woman (1940), Bullets for Rustlers (1940), Deadwood Dick (1940), Perils of Nyoka (1942), Ridin' Down the Canyon (1942), Captain America (1944), and The Girl Who Dared (1944).  It was in the interest of acquiring better work that she switched her name to Adrian Booth, but alas, she was forced to trudge on in similar films, like the cult horror favorite Valley of the Zombies (1946), Daughter of Don Q (1946) and The Plunderers (1948), and she abandoned Hollywood to raise a family in 1951.  This is the only vintage signed image of the actress we've ever encountered.
