Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage signature in fountain pen on a 4x6-inch pale yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in the early 1930s and decorated with a magazine image.  In good condition.  The Wampas Baby Star and model played stylish, well-coiffured, but dizzy blondes in silent and early talkie comedies and dramas like Laugh, Clown, Laugh (1928) with Lon Chaney, A Lady of Chance (1928), Lucky Boy (1928), The Galloping Ghost (1931), Boy Oh Boy! (1932), the Marx Brothers' A Night at the Opera (1935), and Fury (1936).  After retiring at 34, she slipped into obscurity and died, of unspecified causes, at the age of 56.
