Cat. #00085211: JANIS CARTER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage 8x10-inch black and white glamour portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in violet fountain pen, probably in the early 1940s.  Priced to reflect a light diagonal crease that passes through the second-to-last letter of her signature; otherwise, in good condition for its age.  After a failed attempt to launch an opera career, fetching Janis Carter was discovered by Darryl F. Zanuck, who signed her to a movie contract in 1941.  Before abandoning Hollywood a decade later to focus on family life, she was chic and charming in films like Cadet Girl (1941), Secret Agent of Japan (1942), I Married an Angel (1942), Girl Trouble (1942), That Other Woman (1942), Lady of Burlesque (1943), One Mysterious Night (1944), Framed (1947), and A Woman of Distinction (1950).
