BUTTERFLY McQUEEN
Black and white publicity photograph of Butterfly McQueen in her role as Prissy with Vivien Leigh, who starred as Scarlett O'Hara, in the 1939 blockbuster, Gone With the Wind.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "'Hi'/to/Ellen Thanks, again Butterfly McQueen". B/w, 10¼x8. Pictured in her role as Prissy with Vivien Leigh, who starred as Scarlett O'Hara, in the 1939 blockbuster, Gone With the Wind. This photograph is from McQueen's appearance at a 1984 UACC autograph show, and her dealings with the show's promoter Jerry Granat (the item is from the Jerry Granat collection). The "Ellen" to whom this photograph was inscribed was Granat's wife. 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, she 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, McQueen grew tired of the image and retired from films in 1947. She 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. Slightly creased at blank margins and corners, black mark at upper right corner. Minor surface creases (most not evident head on). Fine condition.
