Cat. #0016421: LOTTE LENYA

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage black fountain pen signature on a 1.5 x 3.25-inch cream card, acquired in-person by inveterate collector Howard Davis at Boston's Colonial Theater in the late 1940s or early 1950s. In good condition, with a stray ink mark to the upper left-hand corner, well away from the writing. Tony Award-winning and Academy award-nominated actress and singer Lotte Lenya, who first gained fame in the theater world, with her collaborations with husband Kurt Weil, is best remembered for her portrayal of the villainous Rosa Klebb in the James Bond classic From Russia with Love (1963).
