CLAUDETTE COLBERT and HELEN MACK
The two early Hollywood actress signs their names in pencil for young child actor Billy Seay
Signature: "Claudette/ Colbert" and 'Helen Mack" in pencil. 1 page, 6x4½. Paris-born actress CLAUDETTE COLBERT (1903-1996), who was brought to New York at the age of seven, saw her popularity (and salary) skyrocket after she was cast as "the wickedest woman in history", Nero's unscrupulous wife Poppaea, in the Biblical epic The Sign of the Cross (1932). Colbert showed her flair for sophisticated comedy by winning the 1934 Academy Award for Best Actress for It Happened One Night. HELEN MACK (1913-1986) appeared as a child in silent films, debuting in Success at age 10, and appearing with stars like Gloria Swanson and Mary Astor. She appeared on vaudeville, stock and Broadway stages before emerging as a leading lady of early talking films, known as one of the screen's best criers. She co-starred with Victor McLaglen in While Paris Sleeps (1932), and was a Western heroine in Fargo Express with Ken Maynard and The California Trail with Buck Jones. She starred in the 1933 movie sequel Son of Kong, and played Harold Lloyd's sister in The Milky Way. She played an inexperienced bank robber in The Wrong Road(1937). Later she had great success as a writer, producer and director of radio series, including Richard Diamond and The Saint. She also wrote two stage plays, The Mating Dance (1965) and Everyone Has to Be Somebody (1971). From the album collection of child actor BILLY SEAY (1922-2012), who appeared in many films throughout the decade including The Greater Glory (1926), My Man (1928), and The Marriage Playground (1929). Seay would leave Hollywood in the early 1930s to become a noted artist and illustrator. Toned and slightly soiled. Creased throughout. Pencil notes in top margin in unknown hand. Otherwise, fine condition.
