Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s.  In very good condition.  The veteran character actress of the stage, and silent and early talkie screens 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).
