Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0013453: DOT FARLEY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale pink autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1936 and decorated with a magazine image.  In very good condition and ideal for matting.  Versatile character actress Dot Farley appeared in nearly 350 motion pictures, beginning with supporting roles in countless comedy shorts, many for Mack Sennett.  With the advent of talkies, she was in-demand to play dowdy relatives, gossipy townswomen and haughty society types, memorable as Edgar Kennedy's mother-in-Law in his hilarious series of domestic comedies for RKO, and in films like Lon Chaney's The Unholy Three (1930), Diamond Jim (1935), The Women (1939), and the horror gem The Cat People (1942).
