Cat. #0010401411: CLAUDETTE COLBERT

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Unusually early original Paramount Studios publicity portrait-- actually willing to face forward!-- boldly signed with her name alone in black fountain pen in-person for celebrated collector Joe Podlipsky in 1937.  In good condition, with a few negligible surface scuffs, visible only when the photo is tilted towards a light source.  Elegant leading lady Claudette Colbert won an Oscar for her performance, opposite Clark Gable, in It Happened One Night (1934), and was also memorable in Cleopatra (1934), Imitation of Life (1934), Private Worlds (1935), Drums Along the Mohawk (1939), The Palm Beach Story (1942), and Since You Went Away (1944).
