Photograph signed "Thank you/Mae Clarke/1981" in blue ink. With notation in blue ink on verso in unknown hand. B/w, 9¾x7¾ overall, 9¼x7¼ image, one surface. Shown with John Boles, who played Victor Mortiz, and a picture of Colin Clive, who played Dr. Henry Frankenstein, in a scene from Frankenstein (1931). Clarke, who played Elizabeth, the wife of Dr. Frankenstein,signed this photo during the classic horror film's 50th anniversary. Clarke (1910-1992) often played the screen victim. In 1931, for example, she was the wife of Frankenstein (the mad doctor, at least, not the monster), a self-sacrificing prostitute in The Front Page and again in Waterloo Bridge, and the recipient of Jimmy Cagney's famous grapefruit in the face in Public Enemy. She would be paired again with Cagney, a good friend, in Lady Killer (1933) and Great Guy (1936). Gradually reduced to supporting roles, she was still around for guest parts on TV's Batman (1966). Lightly toned. Pen skipped while writing signature. Errors in negative were reproduced in photo. Light creases on image (not visible head-on). Otherwise in fine condition.
