Uncommon vintage 8x10-inch sepia-tone portrait by Vandamm Studios, in-costume as Vinnie in her husband Howard Lindsay's long-running stage comedy "Life with Father" (1939-1945), boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen.  In good condition, with a touch of waviness in the upper left corner.  The famed leading lady of the stage, who excelled at playing brassy, exuberant eccentrics, was also a character actress in films of the early 1930s through 1970s.  Of particular note were her portrayals of the deceptively meek maid of the villainess in Murder at the Vanities (1934), Jean Proctor in The Little Minister (1934), Miss Bird in the horror classic The Uninvited (1944), and the queen in Cinderella (1957).
