Claudette Colbert signs Playbill for the Ethel Barrymore theatre's production of "The Irregular Verb to Love" - 1963
Show Bill signed: "Claudette/Colbert", 6½x9. 46 pages, for the Ethel Barrymore Theatre production of The Irregular Verb to Love", published 1963 September 30. Paris-born actress Claudette Colbert, who came to New York at the age of seven, 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 the1934 Academy Award for Best Actressfor 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, which she far outclassed her material. Fine condition.
