A very appealing photo of the 1940s star who recounted her wartime experience in Four Jills in a Jeep.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Gerard Ferrier/Happiness always/Carole Landis". B/w, 6½x8½. Born in poverty as Frances Ridste, Carole Landis (1919-1948) adopted her stage name in honor of Carole Lombard, her favorite actress. She played minor parts for Warner Bros. in the late 1930s, until her role in One Million B.C. (1940) made her a star. Possessing both a stunning figure (which made her a favorite World War II pinup) and a fine singing voice, she starred or co-starred in films of the early 1940s, including 1941's Moon Over Miami and I Wake Up Screaming. During World War II, nobody in Hollywood was as dedicated to overseas USO tours as Landis, who contracted dysentery and malaria while boosting the morale of the troops. Her account of her wartime travels, Four Jills in a Jeep, was later made into a film. Landis was linked romantically with many big Hollywood names, including Busby Berkeley, Daryl Zanuck, Charlie Chaplin and Rex Harrison, who discovered her, dead of a drug overdose and apparent suicide, at age 29, and - according to some - novelist Jacqueline Susann. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Light wear at corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
