Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001991511: ALICE PEARCE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly rare vintage inscribed violet fountain pen signature on a 3x5-inch tan card, acquired in-person by an inveterate collector in the late 1950s or early 1960s. In good condition. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Parrot-faced, squawky-voiced bundle of killjoy Alice Pearce was one of the most memorable character actresses of the stage and screen, drawing laughs with mere sniffles, gulps or stares in films like On the Town (1949), The Thrill of It All (1963) and Kiss Me, Stupid (1964). She is best remembered as the Stevens' snooping neighbor Gladys Kravitz on T.V.'s horror-themed sitcom "Bewitched" (1964-1966), which she played until her tragic death of ovarian cancer at the age of 48.
