Classic Entertainment Autographs


Rare vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 2x5-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1940s. In good condition. Veteran character actress of the stage, and silent and early talkie screens Catharine Doucet excelled at playing indomitable matrons, condescending society ladies and venom-spewing harpies in both dramas and comedies. She was unforgettable as Mia Pinneberg in Little Man, What Now? (1934), Jean Oliver in Age of Indiscretion (1935), Eleanor Darling in Accent on Youth (1935), Miriam Hopkins' selfish aunt Lily Mortar in These Three (1936), W.C. Fields' foil Countess Maggi Tubbs DePuizzi in Poppy (1936), Mrs. Rosalie Duncan in The Luckiest Girl in the World (1937), and Mrs. Pennington in It Started with Eve (1941).
