Cat. #0015552: MARTITA HUNT

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 3x5-inch pale grey autograph album page, acquired in-person following a stage appearance in the 1940s or 1950s.  In very good condition, with some fraying to the left edge, well away from the writing, and ideal for matting.  With her intense, horse-like visage; dry diction; caustic tongue; and regal gait, one-of-a-kind British character actress Martita Hunt created a vast array of queens, dowagers, shrews, and evildoers.  She stole every scene in classic films like The Mill of the Floss (1937), House of Mystery (1940), The Strangler (1941), The Wicked Lady (1945), Great Expectations (1946), The Ghosts of Berkeley Square (1947), So Evil My Love (1948), Anna Karenina (1948), Anastasia (1956), Hammer Horrror's The Brides of Dracula (1960), The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm (1962), Beckett (1964), The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964), and Bunny Lake Is Missing (1965).
