Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Just great 10x8-inch black and white scene still from Gone with the Wind (1939), shown alongside Vivien Leigh as Scarlet O'Hara, boldly signed in green felt-tip pen, adding "Prissy, G.W.T.W.," in her later years. In good condition. Best remembered for her portrayal of squeaky-voiced Prissy in Gone with the Wind (1939), Black character actress Butterfly McQueen played similarly anxious, frenetic servant types in films like The Women (1939), Affectionately Yours (1941), A Cabin in the Sky (1943), I Dood It (1943), Mildred Pierce (1945), Flame of Barbary Coast (1945), Duel in the Sun (1946), Killer Diller (1948), Amazing Grace (1974), and The Mosquito Coast (1986). On television, she played Oriole on "Beulah" (1950-1953). The actress died tragically in a house fire in 1995, ignited when a she brought a kerosene lantern too close to her dress.
