Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #004031502: ELAINE STEWART

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x5-inch pale yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in the early 1950s and decorated with two small magazine images.  In good condition, with a few light crinkles and some gentle stains surrounding the affixed clipping on the left.  Note that the image accompanying the signed item here is not actually included with the piece.  Gorgeous redheaded actress and Playboy model Elaine Stewart began her career in small roles in films like Sailor Beware (1952), Singin' in the Rain (1952), You for Me (1952), and Everything I Have Is Yours (1952). Hal B. Wallis had the thought of transforming her into a sort of brunette Marilyn Monroe, and she thereafter played irresistible, scheming temptresses in films like The Bad and the Beautiful (1952), Sky Full Moon (1952), Code Two (1953) with Ralph Meeker, Young Bess (1953), Take the High Ground! (1953), The Adventures of Hajji Baba (1954), Brigadoon (1954), Night Passage (1957), The Tattered Dress (1957), and Escort West (1958) before abandoning acting to settle into marriage.
