Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00411162: ELIZABETH TAYLOR

Rare, uncommonly early fountain pen signature-- tinted violet, her trademark color, to match her eyes-- on a 4x6-inch yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1949, the year she was onscreen in Little Women, when she was 17 years of age. In good condition, with a minute tear to the upper edge, affecting the date notation by the original collector, and excellent for matting with a favorite photograph. After being nominated for three Academy Awards, for Raintree Country (1957), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958) and Suddenly, Last Summer (1959), beautiful, iconic Elizabeth Taylor snagged two Oscars for BUtterfield 8 (1960) and Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966). Elsewhere, she blossomed from an adorable tot into an electrifying leading lady in Hollywood classics like Lassie Comes Home (1942), Jane Eyre (1943), National Velvet (1944), Life with Father (1947), Little Women (1949), Father of the Bride (1950), Father's Little Dividend (1951), A Place in the Sun (1951), Ivanhoe (1952), Giant (1956), Cleopatra (1963), The Sandpiper (1965), and The Taming of the Shrew (1967).
