Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold blue inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch white card, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph hound John Virzi in the 1960s and decorated with a small magazine image. In very fine condition. 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).
