Cat. #00167023: FLORENCE MARLY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch light orange autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1950s o 1960s. In good condition. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Exotically beautiful Czech-born Florence Marly began her career in the films of her husband, Pierre Chenal, most notably L'Alibi (1937), The Lefarge Case (1937), Sirocco (1938), The Last Turn (1939), The Postman Always Rings Twice (1939), Les Maudits (1947), The Idol (1952), and Confession at Dawn (1953). In 1948, she was signed to a contract with Paramount Studios, cast as intriguing bad girls in espionage films like Sealed Verdict (1948) and Tokyo Joe (1949). Her career collapsed in the 1950s, when she was blacklisted due to confusion with a genuine subversive Anna Marly, although she did pop up on an episode of "The Twilight Zone" in 1962 and as the star of the 1966 cult horror flick Queen of Blood (1966). Marly died of a heart attack at the age of 60 and her autograph is rather uncommon in any format.
