Highly rare-- in the sense that it's not one of the countless secretarially-signed or crudely faked examples one so commonly encounters-- and early 8x10-inch black and white glamour portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen in the 1950s. Originally sold by the beloved dealership Golden Age Autographs not long before it closed down. In good condition, with minor toning to the bottom right-hand corner tip and a few minor surface creases. 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).
