Cat. #00525213: MINERVA URECAL

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Exceedingly rare vintage inscribed blue fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch off-white card, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph hound Janet Bruce in the late 1950s, during the time of her appearance in Tugboat Annie (1958), which she references beneath her name. In good condition, with a touch of pen-skipping only in the dedication. Note that the image of the star, shown here alongside the scan of the autograph, is not included. Cranky, cruel-eyed, hatchet-faced character actress Minerva Urecal was a veritable scene-stealer in films like Charlie Chan at the Olympics (1937), The Lady in the Morgue (1938), Golden Boy (1939), Sabotage (1939), Destry Rides Again (1939), No, No Nanette (1940), The Ape (1940), The Wild Man of Borneo (1941), Dressed to Kill (1941), They Died with Their Boots On (1941), The Corpse Vanishes (1942), The Living Ghost (1942), Sabotage (1942), The Ape Man (1942), Ghosts on the Loose (1943), Mr. Skeffington (1943), A Bell for Adano (1945), State Fair (1945), The Bells of St. Mary's (1945), The Snake Pit (1948), The Adventures of Tugboat Annie (1958), and 7 Faces of Dr. Lao (1964). We have encountered her autograph three times in 30 years.
