Cat. #0015720: LOIS JANUARY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Risque 8x10-inch black and white glossy full-body portrait in her prime, boldly signed in black marker in the 1980s.  In very fine condition.  After small roles as a cultist in the Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi horror classic The Black Cat (1934) and a nurse in the Onslow Stevens sci-fi flick Life Returns (1935), the adorable Universal starlet was almost entirely confined to B-level oaters directed by William Kent and Sam Katzman.  When her contract with the studio was up, she transferred to Republic Pictures, and racked up even more credits in westerns, starring alongside Bob Steele and Johnny Mack Brown.  It's a little-known fact that, in 1939, she played one of the manicurists spiffing up Dorothy's nails in fantasy favorite The Wizard of Oz.
