Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0005274: VEDA ANN BORG

Highly scarce vintage inscribed blue fountain pen signature on a 3x5-inch portion of a off-white autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1940s. Minor staining to the four corner tips, from having once been affixed to a scrapbook page; otherwise, in good 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.
