Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00350412: MADAME SPIVY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage inscribed fountain pen signature, part of a large collection of in-person autographs dating to the late 1950s and early 1960s.  In good condition and suitable for matting.  Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the signed card here is not actually included with the item.  Entertainer Madame Spivy, who owned and operated the nightclub Spivy's Roof in New York City in the 1940s and 1950s, capitalized upon her many years of celebrity friendships to enter films as a character actress at the age of 53.  Rotund and silver-tongued, with an air of sophistication, she was memorable in classic films like The Fugitive Kind (1960), Requiem for a Heavyweight (1962), All Fall Down (1962), and The Manchurian Candidate (1962) before her death at the age of 64.
