Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0013515: VERNA FELTON

Rare vintage black fountain pen signature at the bottom of a roughly 8.5 x 11-inch one-page 1957 contractual agreement with Hope Enterprises, related to repeat recordings of "The Bob Hope Show." In good condition for its age, with some minor crinkling, and the autograph itself easily trimmed away from the document, should the buyer so wish. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Unforgettable character actress Verna Felton had extensive experience on the stage and in radio before breaking into film and television, at nearly 50 years of age. With her no-nonsense attitude and distinctive husky voice, she regularly contributed to Disney animated classics, portraying Mrs. Jumbo in Dumbo (1941), the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella (1950), the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland (1951), Aunt Sarah in Lady and the Tramp (1955), Flora and Leah in Sleeping Beauty (1959), and an elephant in The Jungle Book (1967). She also played Pearl Slaghoople on "The Flintstones" (1962-1963).
