Classic Entertainment Autographs


Scarce vintage black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch white card, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph hound John Virzi in the 1960s and decorated with a small magazine image. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Great character actress Marjorie Rambeau was on the Broadway stage from the age of 12 and blossomed into a prominent leading lady. Transitioning to Hollywood in the 1920s, she delivered sterling character and support work as blowsy floozies and other hard-luck dames. She was cast in Min and Bill (1930) and as the title character in Tugboat Annie Sails Again (1940). She was twice nominated for Academy Awards for her supporting work in Primrose Path (1940) and Torch Song (1953). Her last film was the Lon Chaney biopic Man of a Thousand Faces (1957).
