Shown playing tennis in movie still from Let's Make It Legal
Printed Photograph Signed in Ink: "Claudette/Colbert". Sepia, 10x8. Movie still from Let's Make It Legal (1951). Captioned in lower margin. Paris-born actress Claudette Colbert was brought to New York at the age of seven. She embarked on a stage career in 1925. Colbert disliked film acting; but audiences responded to her beauty and cultured voice, so she forsook the stage for Hollywood. Her popularity (and salary) skyrocketed 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. Traveling the usual "fading star" route, Colbert made films in Europe and a budget Western in the U.S. before returning triumphantly to Broadway. In 1961, she returned to Hollywood as Troy Donahue's mother in Parrish. It would be her last film appearance until the 1987 TV movie, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles - in which she far outclassed her material. Slightly creased and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
