CAROL DEMPSTERCheck for $30 signed in blue ink by the silent film actress with her married name. Very rare! Check signed: "Carol Dempster Larsen" in blue ink, 6¼x2¾. April 2, 1963. Check no. 6 drawn on the account of Carol Dempster Larsen at the Manufacturers Trust Company in New York City, New York. Made payable for $30.00 to Jack Garrett (not endorsed on verso). Former dancer Carol Dempster (1901-1991)starred in several of the later films of director D.W. Griffith, with whom she had a romantic relationship. She retired from film after marrying a banker in 1929. Critics in her time treated her harshly, and earlier Griffith stars Lillian Gish and Mae Marsh disliked her. However, some of her films - especially Isn't Life Wonderful (1924) and The Sorrows of Satan (1926) - are well-regarded now. Bank stamps on front and verso. Stamps on verso result in light show-through to front, touching signature. "7" stamp on front also touches signature. Corners gently worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
