Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommon 8x10-inch black and white glossy full-body portrait in her prime, signed and inscribed in felt-tip marker in 1984.  In good condition, with one or two negligible handling dings.  The silent screen beauty starred in films like Nearly Married (1917), The Service Star (1918), The Fair Pretender (1918), Daughter of Mine (1919), Oh, Mary Be Careful (1921), and Bad Company (1925).  With the advent of sound and the loss of her looks with age, she increasingly settled into character roles, memorable in The Marrying King (1952), Lust for Life (1956), Houseboat (1958), Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959), Let's Make Love (1960), They Shoot Horses, Don't They (1969), The Day of the Locust (1975), and Marathon Man (1976).  Her extensive television work included the recurring role of Aunt Martha on "Leave it to Beaver" (1957-1963) and episodes of "Alfred Hitchcock Presents" (1956-1961), "The Twilight Zone" (1963) and "The Odd Couple" (1972).
