Cat. #0011552: PATRICIA CUTTS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely uncommon vintage inscribed blue fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch off-white card, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph hound John Virzi in the 1960s and decorated with a small magazine image. In good condition. After a decade of bit parts in films like I Was a Male War Bride (1949), Merry Andrew (1958), Battle of the Coral Sea (1959), and North by Northwest (1959), comely Patricia Cutts starred as Isabel Stevens Chapin in the William Castle cult horror classic The Tingler (1959). She went on to play Blanche Hunt on "Coronation Street" (1974). Cutts was long plagued by personal problems, including running away from a boarding school as a teen, alcoholism, and legal charges for a near-fatal hit-and-run in 1958. In 1974, she committed suicide by barbiturate overdose, aged only 48, and her autograph is virtually non-existent in any format.
