Cat. #0017391: AGNES MOOREHEAD

Scarce and charming vintage 7x9-inch black and white portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen in the early 1940s. In good condition, with two staple holes to the upper left-hand border, and scattered surface scuffs, the latter invisible when the photo is viewed head-on. Veteran stage, vaudeville and radio actress Agnes Moorehead made her movie debut in 1941, playing young Charles' mother in Citizen Kane. She went on to play neurotic, puritanical, soured women in scores of films, earning four Oscar nominations for The Magnificent Ambersons (1942), Mrs. Parkington (1944), Johnny Belinda (1948), and Hush... Hush, Sweet Charlotte (1964), but never winning the award. Moorehead is best remembered for her role as the enchantress Endora, Samantha's mother, on the popular sitcom "Bewitched" (1964-1972), and made several other contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy film genres, including Story of Mankind (1957), the Vincent Price favorite The Bat (1959), a classic episode of T.V.'s "The Twilight Zone" entitled "The Invaders" (1961), Alice Through the Looking Glass (1966), What's the Matter with Helen? (1971), Dear Dead Delilah (1972), and Frankenstein: The True Story (1973).
