Cat. #001673171: DOROTHY MCGUIRE

Tough to acquire 8x10-inch black and white restrike publicity still from the psychological horror classic The Spiral Staircase (1946), shown as Helen, the mute domestic being terrorized by a serial killer who targets people with disabilities, boldly signed in black felt-tip pen in the 1980s. In good condition. Prodigiously talented, but inexplicably under-appreciated leading lady Dorothy McGuire was dynamic and mesmerizing in Claudia (1943), The Enchanted Cottage (1945), A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945), The Spiral Staircase (1946), Claudia and David (1946), Three Coins in the Fountain (1954), Friendly Persuasion (1956), Old Yeller (1957), A Summer Place (1959), The Dark at the Top of the Stairs (1960), Swiss Family Robinson (1960), The Greatest Story Ever Told (1964), Another Part of the Story (1972), and the horror flick She Waits (1972).  She was nominated for an Academy Award for the Elia Kazan classic Gentleman's Agreement (1947).
