Cat. #0013451123: LUCILE FAIRBANKS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Quite scarce signature in blue felt-tip pen on a 4x6-inch white card, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph hound and dealer Joe Kraus in the 1990s. In good condition and accompanied by a small computer-printed image of the star. The niece of Douglas Fairbanks, beautiful pin-up and leading actress Lucile Fairbanks had major roles in several notable B-movies of the late 1930s and early 1940s, including We Are Not Alone (1939), A Fugitive from Justice (1940), Knute Rockne, All American (1940), Passage from Hong Kong (1941), and The Man Who Returned to Life (1942). Not long after unsuccessfully trying out for the the starring role in Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca (1940), which went to Joan Fontaine, she abandoned the screen and settled into private life.
