Cat. #00159912: ELSA LANCHESTER

Uncommonly early vintage 3.5 x 5.5-inch black and white portrait, boldly signed with her name alone in black fountain pen around 1934. Delightfully eccentric character actress Elsa Lanchester portrayed both Mary Shelley and the titular newlywed in Bride of Frankenstein (1935), and went on to appear in a handful of other horror, sci-fi and fantasy films, including The Ghost Goes West (1935), The Spiral Staircase (1945), The Bishop's Wife (1947), Alice in Wonderland (1955), Bell Book and Candle (1955), Mary Poppins (1964), Pajama Party (1964), Blackbeard's Ghost (1978), Willard (1971), Terror in the Wax Museum (1973), and Arnold (1973).
