Cat. #001323202: MAUDE EBURNE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely rare signature in blue indelible pencil on a 7x5-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s.  In very good condition.  Just the second example we have ever encountered, in very good condition for its age.  Horse-faced character actress Maude Eburne was-- alongside Edna May Oliver, Edith Evans, May Robson, Margaret Rutherford, and Josephine Hull-- one of the silver screen's most unforgettable older-age eccentrics.  She is best known for playing aristocratic harridans and dizzy matrons, as in the early horror gems The Bat Whispers (1930) and The Vampire Bat (1933); This Reckless Age (1932); Return of the Terror (1934); Ruggles of Red Gap (1935); Poppy (1936); Sabotage (1939); L'il Abner (1940); The Border Legion (1940); You Belong to Me (1941); I Married an Angel (1942); To Be or Not to Be (1942); Boris Karloff's The Boogie Man Will Get You (1942); Up in Arms (1944); Rosie the Riveter (1944); The Princess and the Pirate (1944); and Mother Wore Tights (1947).
