Cat. #00155522: MARTITA HUNT

RARE 3.24 x 5.25-inch sepia-tone portrait, shown smoking a cigarette, boldly signed in black fountain pen in the early 1930s. In good condition for its age. With her horse-like visage; haughty British accent; 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).
