LAURA LA PLANTE This typescript of an excerpt describing the actress's life and career is signed in black felt tip Typescript signed: “Laura La Plante” in black felt. 8½x11. Excerpt from “Stars of the Screen- 1932” by Cedric Osmond Bermingham. In part: “'Born in St. Louis, U.S.A., Laura La Plants secured her first role in pictures in 1920, and was paid five dollars for her services. That was in a Christie comedy. Her next engagement was with the same company at 50 dollars a week. Her natural charm registered so well on the screen that Carl Laemmle soon sent for her, and she became a Universal player, graduating in Westerns. […] This grey-eyed blonde is married to William W. Seiter, movie director.'” Laura La Plante (1904-1996) appeared in silent films from age 15, as a Christie Comedy bathing beauty. She was a WAMPAS Baby Star of 1923, and one of Universal's biggest stars of the silent era, equally at home in comic and dramatic roles. Her popular roles included Smouldering Fires (1925), Skinner's Dress Suit (1926) and The Cat and the Canary (1927). She proved competent in talking films, but was offered fewer roles and retired in 1935. She reappeared in the 1950s for one feature film, Spring Reunion (1957) and several TV guest spots, including an appearance on Groucho Marx's quiz show. Corners rounded and creased. Light show-through near signature. Otherwise, fine condition.
