Cat. #00112121: JEANNE CRAIN

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce and quite beautiful vintage 8x10-inch black and white portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in green felt-tip pen, probably in the 1950s. In good condition, with a few minor handling dings, mostly invisible when the photo is viewed head-on, and the tiniest hint of show-through from a rubber stamp on the verso, in the area above her head on the left side. Comely leading lady Jeanne Crain, who snagged an Oscar nod for the title role in Pinky (1949), was also memorable in Winged Victory (1944), State Fair (1945), Leave Her to Heaven (1946), A Letter to Three Wives (1949), Cheaper by the Dozen (1950), Gentlemen Marry Brunettes (1955), Meet Me in Saint Louis (1959), and Pontius Pilate (1962). In 1971, she starred in one forgettable horror flick, The Night God Screamed (1971).
