Cat. #00159912: ELSA LANCHESTER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s. In fine condition, with light wrinkling and areas of extremely faint discoloration, the result of staining on the reverse side, not substantially detracting from overall appearance of the piece. 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).
