Charming 8x10-inch black and white signed and inscribed 1930s portrait wearing a fashionable get-up, including a netted veil-- no, that is not stain next to her face in the image!-- and identified in the snipe on the verso as "Universal's Serial Queen". In good condition. Lovely blonde, blue-eyed Lucile Brown really was the sound era's first true female cliffhanger star. Her first in a total of six serials was Universal's Danger Island (1931), with Battling With Buffalo Bill (1931) and The Airmail Mystery (1932) following in short order. Mascot, the premium independent serial producer, hired her for Last of the Mohicans (1932) and Mystery Squadron (1933).The latter, starring Bob Steele and scores of airplanes, was probably Browne's best-remembered series. The Law of the Wild (1934), also from Mascot, followed, and Browne was Gene Autry's leading lady in his signature opus, Tumbling Tumbleweeds (1935). There were additional Westerns with Johnny Mack Brown and Ken Maynard, not to mention two with John Wayne.
