Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0013453: DOT FARLEY

Highly scarce vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch off-white card, acquired in-person by indefatigable autograph hound John Virzi in the 1960s and decorated with a small book image. In very good condition and ideal for matting with a favorite photograph. 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).
