Cat. #00150712: DOROTHY HART

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommon vintage signature in blue ballpoint pen on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the early 1950s.  In good condition.  Hart began her career as a magazine cover girl.  Securing a contract with Columbia in 1946 that stipulated "A-movies only," the brunette beauty blazed onto the screen in Gunfighters (1947), an above-average Western starring Randolph Scott.  Deeming her assignments beneath her, she tossed them over for Warner Brothers, which, with the possible exception of Raton Pass (1951), also failed to provide her with a single standout film.  Wearing of B-pictures like I Was a Communist for the FBI (1951), Tarzan's Savage Fury (1952) and Loan Shark (1952), she turned to television, starring on such popular game shows as "Take a Guess" (1953) and "Stump the Stars" (1958-1963) before abandoning the industry at the age of 33.  Today, Hart is best remembered for appearing, all too briefly, as Howard Duff's innocent fiancée in The Naked City, the 1948 film noir that later became the basis for the popular television crime series.
