BUTTERFLY MCQUEEN
Butterfly McQueen sends an autograph note on the verso of a photocopied note promoting her one woman show and her charitable project for African children.
Autograph Note Signed: "B. Mc Q.", 1p, 8½x11.

New York, New York, no date. To "Mr. & Mrs. Bernard". In full: "Thanks, ever so much for your generous gift. No, we did not know 'G.W.T.W.' would be so popular. Hastily." Thelma McQueen (1911-1995) was only 13 when she joined a theater group in Harlem. She was nicknamed "Butterfly" after dancing in the butterfly ballet in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.McQueen debuted on Broadway in Brown Sugar (1937) and two years later played her first and most memorable movie role, that of Prissy, the young slave, in Gone With the Wind. After being typecast as a sobbing maid in several films of the 1940s, she grew tired of the image and retired from films in 1947. McQueen continued intermittent theatrical engagements and returned to the screen in the early 1970s (Amazing Grace, 1974; The Mosquito Coast, 1986). In 1975, at the age of 64,she received a Bachelor's Degree in political science from the City College of New York. Image, text and ink stamp on verso show through lightly. Otherwise, fine condition.
