Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0019751112: RAFAELA OTTIANO

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Ultra-, ultra-rare vintage black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1930s, with a typed notation added in the 1960s by the previous owner. In very fine condition and superb for matting with a favorite photograph. Just the fifth example we have seen in over 35 years-- and the last one, which was in pencil, sold for $300. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Great, crazy-eyed Italian-born character actress Rafaela Ottiano excelled at playing malevolent, spiteful, sinister types in films like Grand Hotel (1932), She Done Him Wrong (1933), Great Expectations (1934), Curly Top (1935), horror's The Devil-Doll (1936), Mad Holiday (1936), Marie Antoinette (1938), Suez (1938), Topper Returns (1941), and I Married an Angel (1939).
