Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001631131: BARBARA LAWRENCE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommonly early fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1940s. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Gorgeous Barbara Lawrence was working as a photographer's model when she was snatched up by 20th Century-Fox talent scouts and cast in Billy Rose's Diamond Horseshoe (1945). She went on to memorable work in films like Margie (1946), Unfaithfully Yours (1948), The Street with No Name (1948), A Letter to Three Wives (1949), Peggy (1950), and Oklahoma! (1955), alternatively cast as the heroine's best friend or, where a man was concerned, worst enemy. After shifting to television work in the late 1950s, she vanished from the screen, pursuing a new career as a real estate agent who we bet could have sold anything to anyone!
