JEAN ARTHUR
The actress signs a check at the Paramount Continental Café, paying $1.50 for breakfast.
Meal Ticket signed: "Jean Arthur/10-3-51", in pencil, 3½x5½. Meal check from the Continental Cafe, Check No. 31061. She pays $1.50 for breakfast. Actress Jean Arthur (1900-1991) had a rather unsuccessful silent film career, for a time making Poverty Row Westerns at $25 per movie (1925-1927), and she almost foreswore a film career in favor of stage work. In the talking era, however, she rose to stardom in two reliable niches: screwball comedies opposite stars like Cary Grant (beginning with Only Angels Have Wings, 1935) and Ronald Coleman; and admirable ordinary women in the films of Frank Capra, including Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939). She received a Best Actress Oscar nomination for The More the Merrier in 1944. Her rise was so swift the former $25 per movie actress had a higher annual salary than Lou Gehrig or President Roosevelt by 1936. Her last film, and her only color movie, was Shane (1953). She had her only short-lived TV show in 1966. Arthur was notoriously shy of publicity, declaring at one point that she would rather have her throat slit than endure an interview. Multiple staple holes at top left. Otherwise, fine condition.
