Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #000614113: JEAN BROOKS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Ultra-rare black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1943, the year she stared in The Seventh Victim. This is just the third example of her autograph we have ever encountered. In good condition and suitable for matting with a favorite photograph. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the signed piece is not included. Beautiful R.K.O. Studios B-movie regular Jean Brooks was memorable as Gloria Cunningham in The Invisible Killer (1939); Ming the Merciless' henchwoman Olga in Flash Gordon Conquers the Universe (1940); Gloria Manning in The Green Hornet Strikes Again! (1941); Kiki Walker in The Leopard Man (1943); Iris Fairchild in The Falcon in Danger (1943); and Jacqueline Gibson in The Seventh Victim (1943). She also had a small role in The Invisible Man Returns (1940). Her film career collapsed in her thirties, due to growing struggles with alcoholism, which ultimately led to her death from hepatic encephalopathy at the age of 47.
