Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00053112: FERIKE BOROS

Absolutely impossible to find autograph in black fountain pen, above her handwritten return address, on the verso of a greeting card, mailed in the 1940s. In good condition, with some postal cancellation marks. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Matronly, English-butchering Hungarian-born Ferike Boros was one of the most memorable character actresses in classic Hollywood, playing no-nonsense ethnic mamas and grandmothers in films like Little Caesar (1931), Black Fury (1935), Make Way for Tomorrow (1937), The Light That Failed (1939), Three Cheers for the Irish (1940), Lillian Russell (1940), The Talk of the Town (1942), They Got Me Covered (1943), A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945), and East Side, West Side (1949). This is the second example we have encountered in over 35 years.
