It provides exceedingly rare photographs and biographical information for thousands of actresses of the 1930s. The heavily-illustrated volume will stir the mind of the reader to further investigate the long-lost, angel-faced starlets it resurrects from the past. This particular copy has been autographed on September 23rd 1974 at a gathering honoring Rosalind Russell, at the Rainbow Room in Rockefeller Plaza, by no less than 23 stars and starlets. An original invitation to the event has been stapled to the endpaper. Signatures include Tony Orlando, Julie Newmar, Linda Gray, Henry Fonda, Andy Warhol, Lauren Bacall, Peggy Lee, Joan Crawford, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Ethel Merman, Butterfly McQueen, Rosalind Russell, and 11 more! The dust jacket is in Good condition, with some wear, a few tears, and some tape repair. The book is VG/FN, with some wear to the extremities. Expect fierce bidding on this unique item, signed by some of the biggest movie stars and entertainers in history! From the MAD Collection of Annie Gaines Ashton.
