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. Stamped cancellation on verso overlaps "Que" in endorsement. Else, fine condition.
