Cat. #0031125112: FLORENCE ROBERTS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s and decorated with a small magazine image. In fine condition, with some tape stains to the bottom area. The partial obituary shown laying atop of the leaf here was removed by the current owner and is no longer present. Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the signed card here is not actually included with the item.  Once one of the great beauties of the Broadway stage, Florence Roberts spent her older age in character roles in films, playing warmhearted little old ladies and relatives in the Three Stooges' Soup to Nuts (1930), Make Me a Star (1932), Dangerously Yours (1933), Fast Workers (1933), Cleopatra (1934), the Laurel and Hardy classic Babes in Toyland (1934), Les Miserables (1935), Off to the Races (1937), The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), and Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1940).
