The famed 1940s roller skater and pin-up girl offers her best wishes, signs name in blue ink
Autograph sentiment signed: "Best wishes!/ Gloria Nord" in blue ink. 1 page, 6¼x5¼. Gloria Nord (1922-2009) was an American roller skater, ice skater and pin-up girl, considered the "Sonja Henie on wheels" due to her balletic finesse and theatrical flamboyance which earned her fame throughout the 1940s and 50s. Originally studying to be a Broadway performer, Nord fell in love with roller skating and by the age of 18 she was touring the U.S., most notably as the leading performer with the touring "Skating Vanities" which attracted more than a million people during its first two tours of twenty cities. Nord appeared in a roller-skating scene with Betty Grable in the film Pin Up Girl (1944), later herself becoming a popular pin-up girl with American soldiers during WWII. In the 1950s, Nord turned to ice skating and toured Europe and Australia, even giving a command performance before Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Toned. Left edge frayed. Creased throughout. Slightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
