Cat. #0019713: CAROL OHMART

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare signed sentiment in blue ballpoint pen on a roughly 3.5 x 4.25-inch postal stationery card, probably dating to the 1950s, and decorated with a magazine image by the previous owner, covering the stamp and cancellation, and perhaps an inscription.  The cancellation marks pass through some of the writing; otherwise, in good condition.  Knockout blonde model and actress Carol Ohmart was signed by Paramount in 1955 and touted as the "next Marilyn Monroe", but she proved too hard-bitten and unsympathetic to remind anyone of the vulnerable, innocent Marilyn.  After forgettable work in The Scarlet Hour (1956) and The Wild Party (1956), Ohmart gained some note in William Castle's gimmicky horror flick House on Haunted Hill (1959), Wild Youth (1961), Spider Baby (1968) and The Spectre of Edgar Allan Poe (1974).  Beyond these "highlights", she was basically relegated to television roles, more often than not on western programs.
