Cat. #00586311: MARIE WILSON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Charming and surprisingly elusive vintage 8x10-inch matte-finish black and white portrait, signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen in the 1930s. In good condition, with pinholes to the corners. Quintessential "dumb blonde" actress Marie Wilson is best remembered for the title role on T.V.'s "My Friend Irma" (1947-1953), but she had previously spent a decade-and-a-half on the big screen, in supporting and leading roles. Career highlights include Babes in Toyland (1934), Colleen (1936), Satan Met a Lady (1936), China Clipper (1936), The Great Garrick (1936), The Invisible Menace (1936), Waterfront (1939), Shine on Harvest Moon (1944), My Friend Irma (1949), My Friend Irma Goes West (1950), and A Girl in Every Port (1952). The much-loved star died tragically of cancer at the age of 52.
