Cat. #0031123131: THELMA RITTER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

One of the toughest classic Hollywood character actresses to find in 8x10 format: Choice vintage 8x10-inch black and white publicity portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint pen in the 1950s. In good condition. After a stint as a radio actress, Thelma Ritter was invited by good friend George Seaton to appear in Miracle on 34th Street (1946), proving unforgettable as the shopping mom who is bowled over when Macy's Santa sends her to Gimbels. Studio heads and fans fell in love with weary air and wisecracking, and she was increasingly called upon for a number of key character roles in classic films, including A Letter to Three Wives (1949), City Across the River (1949), All About Eve (1950), The Mating Season (1951), With a Song in My Heart (1952), The Model and the Marriage Broker (1952), Pickup on South Street (1953), Rear Window (1954), and Pillow Talk (1959) before her death of a heart attack at the age of 64.
