BARBARA BAXLEY and GLORIA VANDERBILT The early Hollywood actresses sign their names for a fan in black ink Inscribed signature: "To Katherine/ Barbara Baxley" and on verso, "For/ Catherine/ Gloria Vanderbilt" in black ink. 1 page, 6x4½. BARBARA BAXLEY (1923-1990) appeared on television from the early 1950s through the mid-1980s, cast in six episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and both the original (1959) and later (1986) versions of The Twilight Zone. She also appeared in feature films, including the role of Sally Fields' mother in Norma Rae (1979). Her first love was the theater, however. She made her Broadway debut in Noel Coward's Private Lives (1948), and was nominated for a Tony in the Tennessee Williams comedy Period of Adjustment (1961). Among her many other visits to the Great White Way were Chekhov's Three Sisters, Neil Simon's Plaza Suite and the 1963 musical She Loves Me. GLORIA VANDERBILT (1924-2019) was an American artist, author, actress, socialite, and heiress of the illustrious Vanderbilt family fortune. After losing her father to liver disease at a young age, Vanderbilt received a large trust fund, and was center of a very public custody battle between her mother and Aunt Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney. In her teens, she became a very popular socialite, even appearing on the cover of Harper's Bazaar and eventually moving to Hollywood. Although she took some acting parts, she was always best known for her social life, her famous boyfriends, as well as her many husbands (she is believed to be Truman Capote's inspiration for Holly Golightly). Her novels include Once Upon a Time: A True Story, The Memory Book of Starr Faithfull (1994), and A Mother's Story. She is the mother of journalist Anderson Cooper. Toned and soiled. Left edge frayed and slightly torn. Binding holes in left margin. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
