Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #003872: KIM STANLEY

Rather scarce vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x5-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collector Howard Davis at the very onset of her career. In good condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Prodigiously talented stage star Kim Stanley made only a handful of forays into cinema, but when she did step in front of the camera, the result was always mesmerizing.  She was marvelous as sensitive glamour-girl Rita Shawn in The Goddess (1958); the increasingly unhinged medium in Seance on a Wet Afternoon (1964), for which she earned an Oscar nod; domineering, wrathful Lillian Farmer in Frances (1982), which brought her second Academy Award nomination; and the crusty, sun-baked Pancho Barnes in The Right Stuff (1983).
