Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00174012: HELEN MORGAN

Scarce and beautiful vintage 7.5 x 9.5-inch matte-finish sepia-tone half-length portrait of the trouble-plagued singer and actress, boldly signed and inscribed, circa 1930.  In fine condition, with what appears to be some very slight trimming.  The wildly popular torch singer created the role of Julie in the first and second Broadway productions of "Show Boat" (1927, 1932), which she later reprised in the acclaimed film version of 1936.  She died of cirrhosis of the liver at age 41 and her autograph is rather elusive in any format.
