Handwritten note of the silent film actress
Autograph Note signed: "July 31 - 1925/I am sure you are/Someone I just/can't forget./As you know me - Always/Margaret Livingston", 6x3¾. Screen actress Margaret Livingston (1900-1985) appeared in her first silent film (The Invisible Chain) in 1915. Among her noteworthy performances was Sunrise (1927). Livingston made a smooth transition to talking films; her voice was even used to dub other actresses. However, she married band leader Paul Whiteman in 1931 and retired from acting in 1934. Livingston was among the celebrity guests aboard William Randolph Hearst's yacht in 1924 when producer/director Thomas Ince, partner of D. W. Griffith and Mack Sennett, died mysteriously. The death was ruled a heart attack, but amateur sleuths allege that Hearst shot Ince, mistakenly believing he was shooting Charlie Chaplin, whom he suspected of having an affair with Marion Davies, and that Hearst used his press power to cover up the scandal. In the Peter Bogdanovich film The Cat's Meow (2001), Margaret Livingston (played by Cary Elwes) is portrayed as Ince's mistress. Ink lightly smudged (not affecting signature). Otherwise, fine condition.
