Cat. #001372: EMILY FITZROY

Rare vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s by Hollywood hairstylist Lily Dirigo-- note that the actress must have must have misheard her name, as she wrote "Dirigl" as the recipient's the surname. In good condition. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the signed piece is not included. Horse-faced character actress Emily Fitzroy was one of the silent and early talkie screens' great "old crone" types, memorable in films like Way Down East (1920) and Show Boat (1929), and especially in the early thriller The Bat (1926), in which she played Miss Cornelia Van Gorder.
