Scarce, uncommonly early 3.5 x 5-inch matte-finish black and white portrait, boldly signed in blue fountain pen next to a pre-printed signature for a personal friend when she was about 17 years of age! Very fine condition. 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).
