Cat. #001775: ONA MUNSON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage 3.5 x 5-inch black and white portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in white fountain pen in the 1930s.  In good condition, with heavy mounting remnants on the verso. Best remembered as emotionally complex prostitute Belle Watling in Gone With the Wind (1939), heartbreaking Ona Munson had a sporadic Hollywood career in the 1930s and 1940s, with notable roles in Scandal Street (1939), Shanghai Gesture (1941), Dakota (1945), and The Red House (1947). Plagued by ill health at a relatively early age, she committed suicide by overdose at the age of 51, and her autograph is highly elusive in any format.
