Photograph signed "I remember, too (the Thirties)/and as our well-remembered,/Al Jolson always said:/'You ain't seen/nothin' yet'!/Greetings/Mae Clarke/1983". With pencil notations on verso in unknown hand. B/w, 8x9¾ overall, 7¼x9¼ image, one surface. Clarke (1910-1992, born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) often played the screen victim. For example, in 1931 - a busy year for Clarke - 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). Clarke retired to the Motion Picture Country House in 1970. Lightly toned and creased. Lightly spotted (not visible head on). Errors in negative were reproduced in photo. Otherwise in fine condition.
