Cat. #00132320511: HELEN JEROME EDDY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather uncommon vintage inscribed signature in black fine-tip pen on a light yellow 4x6-inch card, acquired in-person by indefatigable autograph hound John Virzi in her later years and decorated with a small magazine image. In good condition. Pretty Helen Jerome Eddy played genteel heroines in dozens of silent dramas and comedies through the late 1920s, most notably Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1917) and Quality Street (1927). With the advent of talkies, she was increasingly relegated to character roles, including the first Our Gang sound short Small Talk (1929), Girls of Excitement (1931), Skippy (1931), Mata Hari (1931), Frisco Jenny (1932), The Bitter Tea of General Yen (1933), horror's Bride of Frankenstein (1935), Show Boat (1936), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947).
