EDNA MAY OLIVER
The Academy Award winning actress signs with loving thoughts on this 11x14 image.
Inscribed photograph signed: "With loving thoughts to Norma/Edna May Oliver/1939", in blue ink, B/w 11x14, image 8½x10. Edna May Oliver (1883-1942) shined on Broadway as the dour Quaker aunt in Jerome Kern's Oh Boy!, the first of her many tart-tongued characters. Her film career, beginning in 1923, included mostly supporting roles, but her starring vehicles included several films as spinster sleuth Hildegarde Withers. Oliver received an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actress for Drums Along the Mohawk (1939). When asked why she appeared in so many comedies, she replied, "With a horse's face, what more can I play?". Lightly worn on corners. Left corner lightly creased. Embossed caption beneath bottom right margin of image, not seen head on. Otherwise, fine condition.
