Autograph note signed: "Helene Costello", in black ink, 4x6. In full: "To Mrs Canfield With sincere Good Wishes [signature] November 22 1932". Helene Costello (1906-1957), the daughter of stage actor Maurice Costello, was a successful actress in her own right with 100 film credits to her name. First appearing as a child actress in vaudeville, Costello's first film role was in an adaption of Les Miserables (1909) alongside her father as Jean Valjean. By the mid 1920's, Costello was earning a reported $3,000 a week. She was a WAMPAS Baby Star in 1927, indicating her on the rise career. In 1928, she appeared in the film Lights of New York, which was the first all-talking full length feature film. However, after sound became more and more popular, Costello's career began to decline as it was thought her voice did not record well. This, in addition with her addiction problems, ended her career in 1942. Left edge torn and creased. Heavily toned. Corners slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
