Cat. #001223: IRINA DEMICK

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce signature in heavy pencil on a 2 x 5.5-inch portion a white album page, acquired in the early 1970s.  In good condition, with one crinkle in the upper left-hand quadrant, away from the writing, and suitable for matting.  Highlights of the all-too-brief career of gorgeous French-born leading lady and model Irina Demick included The Longest Day (1962), The Visit (1964), Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines (1965), Up from the Beach (1965), and The Sicilian Clan (1969).  Perhaps because her affair with Darryl F. Zanuck fizzled, her career came to an inexplicable halt in 1972, and she slipped into obscurity.  Her autograph is extremely uncommon in any format.  This is just the third example we've ever encountered.
