Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0015661311: MARGARET IRVING

Uncommon vintage 8x10-inch black and white bust portrait by Elmer Fryer, boldly signed in blue ballpoint pen in the 1950s.  In fine condition, with scattered handling dings.  After making her screen debut in the early sci-fi flick Radio-Mania in 1922, the sophisticated leading lady played Mrs. Whitehead in the Marx Brothers classic Animal Crackers (1930), Lilli Rochelle in Charlie Chan at the Opera (1936), Della Bailey in San Francisco (1936), Madame Delacour in Mr. Moto's Last Warning (1939), Mrs. Winthrop in the Abbott and Costello comedy In Society (1944), and Mrs. Grumbacher in Ain't Misbehavin' (1955).  This is just the second signed photo of the actress we've ever encountered.
