GONE WITH THE WIND MOVIE CAST: BUTTERFLY McQUEEN, ANNE RUTHERFORD and EVELYN KEYES
Butterfly McQueen, Anne Rutherford and Evelyn Keyes sign a black and white magazine photograph of two scenes from Gone With the Wind.
Book Photograph signed: "Butterfly McQueen", "Anne Rutherford/'Carreen'" and "Evelyn Keyes". B/w, 8x10¾. Two scenes from the 1939 epic, one picturing Scarlett O'Hara and the other showing the family and slaves working in the field after the devastation of the war. THELMA McQUEEN (1911-1995) was only 13 when she joined a theater group in Harlem. She was nicknamed "Butterfly" after dancing in the butterfly ballet in a production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. She debuted on Broadway in Brown Sugar (1937), and two years later played her first and most memorable movie role, that of Prissy, the young slave in this film. After being typecast as a sobbing maid in several films of the 1940s, she grew tired of the image and retired from films in 1947. After playing passive roles under Cecil B. DeMille, EVELYN KEYES (1919-2008) received her best opportunity outside of the DeMille fold when she was cast as the eternally jilted Suellen O'Hara in this film. Some of her other notable works include Face Behind the Mask (1941), Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941) and 1947's Mating of Millie. At MGM from 1937, ANNE RUTHERFORD (born in 1920) gained minor stardom as Polly Benedict in the studio's Andy Hardy series. She was allowed to display her perky comic gifts in a trio of 1940s mystery-comedies co-starring Red Skelton (Whistling in the Dark, Whistling in Dixie, Whistling in Brooklyn), and was quite appealing as Careen O'Hara in this film. She closed out her film career in 1950 to devote more time to her private life; thereafter limiting her activity to her annual appearance as Suzanne Pleshette's mother on TV's The Bob Newhart Show. Lightly creased. Adequate contrast. Fine condition.
