Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #005651: ETHEL WATERS

Uncommonly early inscribed thick pencil signature on a 4x6-inch pink autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1939 and decorated with a small magazine image. In good condition for its age. Eminent jazz, blues and gospel singer Ethel Waters made a number of noteworthy forays into motion pictures, including Tales of Manhattan (1942), Cabin in the Sky (1943), Stage Door Canteen (1943), and Pinky (1949), for which she earned an Oscar nod. She also shined in the title role on T.V.'s "Beulah" (1950-1951).
