Cat. #00158611: MERNA KENNEDY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x5-inch light purple autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1920s or early 1930s.  Priced to reflect a large patch of discoloration, most of which could easily be trimmed away.  Before her premature abandonment of acting to marry choreographer Busby Berkeley and then tragic death of a heart attack at the age of 36, lovely Merna Kennedy was a popular leading lady of the silent and early talkie eras.  Her first film was Charlie Chaplin's The Circus (1928), followed by Broadway (1929), Barnum Was Right (1929), The Rampant Age (1930), King of Jazz (1930), Midnight Special (1930), The Gay Buckaroo (1932), Lady with a Past (1932), Ghost Valley (1932), Come On, Tarzan (1932), The All-American (1932), Red-Haired Alibi (1932), Laughter in Hell (1933), and The Big Chance (1932).
