The early Hollywood actress signs her name for child actor Billy Seay in black ink
Inscribed Signature: "To Billie/ Joyce Compton" in blue ink, 6x4½. Joyce Compton (1907-1997) broke into films in the late silent era (around 1924) and made no fewer than 125 movies before retiring by the age of 50. She often played comic supporting roles. Among her best films were The Awful Truth (1937) and Sky Murder (1940). Between films, Compton designed her own clothes and engaged in her hobby of oil painting. She later designed hand-painted note cards as keepsakes for her fans. From the album collection of child actor BILLY SEAY (1922-2012), who appeared in many films throughout the 1920s including The Greater Glory (1926), My Man (1928), and The Marriage Playground (1929). Seay would leave Hollywood in the early 1930s to become a noted artist and illustrator. Toned. Light surface creases. Binding holes in left margin. Small stains throughout. Otherwise, fine condition.
