Signed autograph quotation from Pride and Prejudice, which she was performing on Broadway when she wrote it. A rare signature.
Autograph Quotation signed: "'Have you heard the/news? It is of the/most tremendous/importance to all/of us!!' from 'Pride/& Prejudice' Music Box/Studio - Lucille Watson", 6x4½. Dated (unknown hand): "Nov. 8 - 35". Canadian actress Lucile Watson (1879-1962) performed on Broadway for over 50 years, beginning with Hearts Aflame (1902) and concluding with Late Love (1953-1954). When she signed this sheet, she was appearing there as Mrs. Bennett in a stage adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, and she quotes from it here. Even as a young beauty, Watson was said to have a stern look. This visage became familiar to movie audiences when, after the death of her husband, playwright Louis Shipman, in 1934, she brought her talents to Hollywood. She played a long series of strong older women in films like The Razor's Edge (1946) and Little Women (1949), and she received an Oscar nomination as a Washington matriarch in Watch on the Rhine (1943). Vertical fold crease at center passing through "L" of signature. Three (3) binding holes at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
