Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0019631242: MAIDIE NORMAN

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely rare vintage inscribed brown fountain pen signature on a 1.5 x 5.5-inch portion of a tan album page, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph hounds Irene and Rose Gellar in the early 1950s. In good condition. Veteran Black character actress Maidie Norman is probably best remembered as Elvira Stitt, Joan Crawford's nosy friend who gets bludgeoned to death with a hammer by Bette Davis in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). She was elsewhere noteworthy in The Burning Cross (1947), Manhandled (1949), The Well (1951), Tarzan's Hidden Jungle (1955), Man with the Gun (1955), and Written on the Wind (1956), as well as on T.V.'s "The Twilight Zone" (1964), in the much-loved episode "The Masks."
