Cat. #00061211: PAMELA BRITTON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce and adorable 8x10-inch vintage publicity portrait in-costume as a fortune teller from an unknown film, boldly signed and inscribed in fountain pen.  In very fine condition, with a few negligible handling dings. The lovely blonde leading lady of the stage and screen-- daughter of character actress Ethel Owen, who played Ralph's venomous mother-in-law on T.V.'s "The Honeymooners" (1955-1956)-- began her career as a big band vocalist in the 1940s.  She went on to dazzle audiences in such Broadway classics as "Oklahoma!", and "Brigadoon", "Annie Get Your Gun," and "Guys and Dolls," and starred, 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 difficult to come by.
