Black and white vintage publicity photograph of Lina Basquette smiling broadly
Photograph Inscribed and Signed: "To/Jim Rogge/Best Wishes/Lina Basquette". B/w, 8x10. Lina Basquette (1907-1994), a leading dancer in the Ziegfield Follies, starred in films of the silent era, including Cecil B. DeMille's The Godless Girl (1929). She was married nine times, beginning with movie mogul Sam Warner, and Basquette boasted of affairs with men including boxer Jack Dempsey and mobster Johnny Roselli. Hitler personally invited her to visit him in Berchtesgaden, where she claimed to have fended off his advances. Retired from films after 1942, Basquette became a prize-winning breeder of Great Danes. Ink smudged at the lower flourish of the "L" and the "na" of Lina. Lightly creased at blank margins and corners, stained at lower left and mid-right margins. Surface creased, touching writing and facial image (all writing legible). Glue stain on verso shows through at chin of facial image. Overall, fine condition.
