Cat. #001322111: ELLEN DREW

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Lovely original 7x9-inch 1939 Paramount Pictures publicity portrait, not trimmed down as one might imagine, based upon the thin white borders, signed and inscribed to an inveterate collector in black felt-tip pen in her later years. In good condition, with a few minor surface crinkles, invisible when the photo is viewed head-on. Comely Ellen Drew, who starred in films like If I Were a King (1938), Christmas in July (1940) and Johnny O'Clock (1947), is remembered by horror, sci-fi and fantasy buffs for her (far more memorable) roles in The Monster and the Girl (1941), The Mad Doctor (1941) with Basil Rathbone and the Boris Karloff classic Isle of the Dead (1945).
