Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #000614113: HAZEL BROOKS

Scarce vintage signature in black felt-tip pen on a 4x6-inch yellow card, acquired in-person by inveterate collector John Virzi in 1982. In very good condition and ideal for matting with a favorite photograph of the star. Smoldering actress and model Hazel Brooks, who made headlines at age 19 when she married 51-year-old Cedric Gibbons, was memorable in a mixed bag of A- and B-pictures, including Du Barry Was a Lady (1943), Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944), Ziegfeld Follies (1945), The Harvey Girls (1946), Body and Soul (1947), Sleep, My Love (1948), The Basketball Fix (1951), and The I Don't Care Girl (1953). This is just the second signed portrait of the actress we have encountered in over 35 years, and is the only one we have seen dating to her Hollywood heyday.
