KATINA PAXINOU. Scarce inscribed signature: "Best wishes/Dear George/Katina Paxinou/1958", 1p, 7½x10. Printed b/w photograph and biography, 3¾x1¼, affixed at blank area beneath signature. Operatically trained Greek stage and film actress Katina Paxinou (1900-1973) is probably best remembered by American audiences as Pilar in the film version of Hemingway's classic of the Spanish Civil War, For Whom the Bell Tolls (1943). This role earned her an Oscar and Golden Globe as Best Actress. Trapped in England when the Germans invaded her home country in World War II, she moved to the US and made several English-language films, including Confidential Agent (1945), Mourning Becomes Electra (1947) and Prince of Foxes (1949). She returned to Greece in 1950, focusing most of her talent on theatre. From autograph book, unrelated 2¼x2¼ b/w photograph and inscription and signature on verso (light show through). Stray red ink mark to left of the "B" in Best, where Paxinou started to write, but then wrote lower on the page. Lightly rippled. Rectangular shaded area at lower margin. Overall, fine condition.
