Cat. #0005274: VEDA ANN BORG

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage 8x10-inch black and white portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen in the 1930s. One minor chip to the image in the area of her hair and some gentle edgewear; otherwise, in fine condition for its age. Cult favorite Veda Ann Borg was typically cast as brassy, man-eating sexpots, vacillating between leading and supporting roles in films like Kid Galahad (1937), Alcatraz Island (1937), The Shadow (1940), I Married an Angel (1942), Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1942), the horror film Revenge of the Zombies (1943), The Falcon in Hollywood (1944), Jungle Raiders (1945), Mildred Pierce (1945), The Blonde Savage (1947), The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947), Guys and Dolls (1955), and The Alamo (1960). In 1939, the once-gorgeous actress was involved in a serious automobile accident which necessitated surgical reconstruction of her face, after which she was never quite the same, physically or emotionally. Too add to her long list of sorrows, she developed cancer in her late 50s, to which she ultimately succumbed at the age of 58. Her autograph is quite uncommon in any format.
