Cat. #00218112: ELLA RAINES

Vintage 8x10-inch black and white publicity portrait in her prime, boldly signed in black felt-tip marker in her later years. In good condition, with a few minor surface impressions. Scrumptious brunette Ella Raines was struggling to establish herself on the Broadway stage when she was discovered by Howard Hawks, who hand-selected her to play Randolph Scott's lady friend in the war film Corvette K-225 (1943). She went on to star in the John Wayne western Tall in the Saddle (1944), the noir flick Phantom Lady (1944), Hail the Conquering Hero (1944), The Web (1947) with Vincent Price, Brute Force (1947), and Impact (1949), before retiring in 1957 to raise a family. Her autograph is somewhat uncommon in any format.
