The early twentieth-century actress smiles in 7x9 photograph, signs name in white ink
Inscribed photograph signed: "To Harry Wickman/ Sincerely/ Frances Starr" in white ink. Sepia, 7x9. Frances Starr (1886-1973) was a stage and film actress with a career spanning 50 plus years, beginning with her appearance in the 1901 play Nell Gwyn. She would appear in 24 more plays afterwards, including The Case of Becky (1912), The Shelf (1926), Lady Jane (1934), and Claudia (1941). Many of these plays would be starring roles or prominent roles, though she unfortunately never gained the critical reception she desired. Beyond theater, she appeared in a small number of film and television roles, with a standout role in one of the early "talkies" Five Star Final (1931) as a wronged mother. Her career slowed after the 50's, and she passed away later in 1973 after being retired from acting for several years. Edges slightly frayed. Ink notes on verso in unknown hand. Ink stamps on verso. Tape adhesive affixed on verso. Stained and soiled on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
