Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00061211: PAMELA BRITTON

Scarce vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch light green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the early 1950s. In good condition for its age and excellent for matting with a favorite photograph. Pamela Britton, lovely blonde leading lady of the stage and screen, was the daughter of character actress Ethel Owen, who played Ralph's venomous mother-in-law on T.V.'s "The Honeymooners" (1955-1956). She began her career as a big band vocalist in the 1940s, going on to dazzle audiences in such Broadway classics as "Oklahoma!", "Brigadoon", "Annie Get Your Gun," and "Guys and Dolls," and to star, opposite Frank Sinatra, in the musical Anchors Aweigh (1945). In the 1950s, she found new word in B-movies and on television, headlining in the Beverly Garland favorite D.O.A. (1950) and playing the title role on the short-lived "Blondie" (1957).  Her best-known role was that of nosy landlady Lorelei Brown on the sci-fi-themed sitcom "My Favorite Martian" (1963). Britton died tragically of a brain tumor in 1974, aged only 51 years, and autographed material in virtually any format is highly difficult to come by.
