Autograph Sentiment signed: "Best wishes/Benita Hume/Oct 1928" and, on verso, "Isabel Jeans", 5¼x3½. British actresses Benita Hume and Isabel Jeans appeared together in Easy Virtue, a silent film written by Noël Coward and directed by Alfred Hitchcock. BENITA HUME (1906-1967), the sister of MGM screenwriter Cyril Hume, began her career as a pianist but turned to acting "for excitement." She made her film debut in 1925, the year before she starred in one of Alfred Hitchcock's early silents, Easy Virtue. After moving to Hollywood in 1932, Hume made a long list of feature films, including The Worst Woman in Paris (1933), The Private Life of Don Juan (1934), The Gay Deception (1935) and Peck's Bad Boy with the Circus. Hume was married to actor Ronald Colman, with whom she appeared on radio's Jack Benny Program and the radio situation comedy, The Halls Of Ivy, from 1938 until his death in 1958. She was later married to actor George Sanders, an old friend, from 1959 until her death in 1967. Ink note (unknown hand) Hume's side. ISABEL JEANS (1891-1985) made her London stage debut in 1909 at the age of 18 and starred on Broadway in the 1920s and 1930s. Jeans, who made her film debut in 1917, appeared in a number of British and U.S. films (she came to Hollywood in 1937), including The Dictator (1935), Tovarich (1937), Suspicion (1941), Gigi (1958, playing the aunt of courtesan-in-training Leslie Caron), It Happened in Rome (1959) and The Magic Christian (1969). Married to actor Claude Rains from 1913-1915, Jeans made her farewell stage appearance in 1971 at the age of 80. Light show through of Hume's writing. Lightly shaded. Nicked at upper edge. Pencil note (unknown hand) on Hume side. Overall, fine conditon.
