Extremely rare pencil signature on a 2x5-inch portion of a pale blue autograph album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collector Rosanne Deerdorff Ochoa in 1935. In good condition for its age, with gentle wear and a minor stain to the lower edge. Polish-born trapeze artist-turned-singing comedienne Lyda Roberti starred in a number of frothy Hollywood musicals of the 1930s, typically cast as glamorous man-eaters. She was especially funny in Eddie Cantor's The Kid from Spain (1932) and W.C. Fields' Million Dollar Legs (1932). Roberti briefly replaced Thelma Todd in a series of Hal Roach comedy shorts, opposite Patsy Kelly, before her fatal heart attack at the age of 31. Autographed material in any format is virtually nonexistent.
