Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001442351: GLORIA GRAHAME

Highly rare 10x8-inch black and white portrait in her prime, boldly signed and inscribed in red felt-tip pen in her later years. In good condition, with a few minor handling dings. After garnering public attention for her portrayal of Violet Bick in It's a Wonderful Life (1946), sexy Gloria Grahame went on to play a string of shady, sultry types in noir gems like Crossfire (1947), In a Lonely Place (1950), Sudden Fear (1952), The Big Heat (1953), Human Desire (1954), and Naked Alibi (1954). The actress was also memorable as Ado Annie Carnes in Oklahoma! (1955). She died of stomach cancer at the age of 57 and her autograph, always sought by It's a Wonderful Life collectors, is elusive in any format.
