Cat. #001342112: EDITH EVANS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommonly early-- and uncommonly large-- vintage 7.75 x 9.75-inch double-weight black and white portrait, boldly signed in blue fountain pen in the 1930s. In fine condition. Considered one of the finest actresses of the last century, stage and screen doyenne Dame Edith Evans preferred interesting and difficult portrayals to starring roles. Her memorable films include The Importance of Being Earnest (1952), Look Back in Anger (1959), The Nun’s Story (1959), Tom Jones (1963), The Chalk Garden (1964), Young Cassidy (1965), The Whisperers (1967), and Crooks and Coronets (1969).
