Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001661442: SUE LYON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly rare 2x4-inch clip from a light green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1960s, not long after she played the titular nymphet in Lolita (1962), her best-known role. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Pretty Sue Lyon's all-too-brief film career included Lolita (1962), The Night of the Iguana (1964), 7 Women (1966), The Flim-Flam Man (1967), Four Rode Out (1970), and Evil Knievel (1971). Following a brief role in the cult horror flick Alligator (1980), the actress abruptly abandoned Hollywood, aged only 44, and her autograph is extremely elusive in any format. This is the earliest example we have ever encountered.
