Cat. #002184: JESSIE RALPH

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly rare vintage 8x10-inch matte-finish black and white studio portrait, boldly signed in black fountain pen in the 1930s. In fine condition for its age, with mild creasing at the bottom left-hand corner, very slightly intruding into the image. A signature in red pencil of the portrait's unknown photographer appears at the bottom left corner, traversed by the aforementioned bend. Dowdy, matronly character actress Jessie Ralph played kindly grandmothers, sagacious maids, stern governesses, and dizzy society types in films like Murder at the Vanities (1934), The Affairs of Cellini (1934), Les Miserables (1935), David Copperfield (1935), After the Thin Man (1936), San Francisco (1936), Camille (1936), Little Lord Fauntleroy (1936), The Good Earth (1937), Drums Along the Mohawk (1939), Star Dust (1939), and The Blue Bird (1940).
