Cat. #0010403112: JOAN COLLINS

Alluring 8x10-inch black and white portrait in her prime, boldly signed with her name alone in blue felt-tip marker in-person at a film convention appearance about a decade ago. In very good condition. Voluptuous, sultry-voiced leading lady Joan Collins entered British cinema in 1951, gaining international acclaim as the femme fatale in Howard Hawks' Egyptian epic Land of the Pharaohs (1955). The following year, she was imported to Hollywood to portray real life bad girl Evelyn Nesbit Thaw in The Girl in the Red Velvet Swing (1956), and went on to star in Island in the Sun (1957), The Bravados (1958), Esther and the King (1960), Can Hieronymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness? (1969), and If It's Tuesday, This Must Be Belgium (1969).  After a brief hiatus from the big screen, she found new work in horror, sci-fi and fantasy flicks like Inn of the Frightened People (1971), Quest for Love (1971), Tales from the Crypt (1972), Tales That Witness Madness (1973), Sharon's Baby (1975), and Empire of the Ants (1977). She was also unforgettable as Siren on T.V.'s "Batman" (1967) and viperish mega-bitch Alexis Carrington Colby on the prime time soap opera Dynasty (1981-1999).
