Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0013001111: ANN DORAN

Uncommonly early 8x10-inch glossy black and white publicity portrait of the prolific character actress, boldly signed in blue fountain pen in the 1940s. Later-in-life autographed photos of the star can readily be found, but ones dating to her Hollywood heyday are quite another matter entirely, this being just the second example we have encountered in over 35 years. In good condition, with some minor bits of soiling to the white borders. Making her film debut at age four, she appeared in hundreds of supporting film and television roles during the course of a six-decade career. Her numerous forays into the horror and sci-fi genres included The Man They Could Not Hang (1939) with Boris Karloff, Them! (1954), The Man Who Turned to Stone (1957), and It! The Terror from Beyond Space (1958).
