Cat. #0016731512: RUTH MCDEVITT

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan album page, acquired in-person by an inveterate autograph hound associated with Boston's Colonial Theater in the 1950s. In good condition. Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the autograph here is not actually included with the signed piece.  Ruth McDevitt was one of Hollywood’s and television’s most memorable character actresses, playing delightfully daffy, wizened eccentrics. Her long list of memorable credits film include The Parent Trap (1961), Boys’ Night Out (1962), Alfred Hitchcock’s horror classic The Birds (1963), Pistols ‘n’ Petticoats (1966), Change of Habit (1969), The Shakiest Gun in the West (1968), Angel in My Pocket (1969), and Mame (1974).
