Small 3½x5½ b/w photo of actor Elizabeth Allan in a black gown, signed with her "Best wishes"
Photograph signed "Best wishes/Elizabeth Allan" in blue ink. B/w, 3½x5½ overall, 3x4 image, one surface, printed on cardstock. English actress Allan (1908-1990) began her acting career on the English stage, including four years with the Old Vic, before taking her first movie role in 1931. In all, she appeared in over 50 movies and TV shows between 1931 and 1979, often in starring roles. 1935 was probably her best year, with appearances in two crackerjack Charles Dickens adaptations, A Tale of Two Cities and David Copperfield. But her roles didn't improve much after that (she reportedly felt like she was "slumming" when she appeared in the Tod Browning horror film Mark of the Vampire that same year). Allan sued MGM after being replaced by Rosalind Russell in 1937's The Citadel, and Hollywood responded by freezing her out of roles; she appeared in only three movies in as many years after that. She returned to England after three years of this and continued her career, making the jump to TV in 1958. Lightly toned, stained, creased and bowed. Mounting remnants and white tape on verso (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition.
