Lila Lee (1901-1973) was brought to Hollywood in 1918 by Jesse Lasky. Her first film was The Cruise of the Make Believe followed by Cecil B. deMille's Male and Female in 1919. She costarred with Rudolph Valentino in Blood and Sand (1922) and with Lon Chaney (Sr.) in The Unholy Three (1930). Highly publicized illnesses resulted in fewer offers. Lee appeared in only three movies after 1937 and a few television appearances in the 1950s. Her son, James Kirkwood, won the 1976 Pulitzer Prize in Drama for writing A Chorus Line. Signature in a lighter ink than inscription. Some foxing, rounded corners, minor creases, white spots from negative reproduces on photo, minor stains on lower right. Overall, fine condition.
