MARIA MONTEZ Pink album leaf signed by Montez in blue ink Inscribed signature: "To [illegible]/Maria Montez" in blue ink. With pencil notations on verso in unknown hand. 6x4¼ leaf with two rounded corners. Montez (1912-1951, born Maria Africa Antonia Gracia Vidal de Santo Silas in Barahoma, Dominican Republic) was an exotic beauty who would make 27 movies. She began her film career in 1941 with a bit part in Universal's The Invisible Woman. The following year, the actress who would come to be called "The Caribbean Cyclone" and "The Queen of Technicolor" would pair for the first time with Jon Hall in Arabian Nights. The two proved so popular that they co-starred in White Savage (1943), Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Cobra Woman and Gypsy Wildcat (all 1944) and Sudan (1945). When her Hollywood career began to fade, Montez moved to Europe with her actor husband, Jean-Pierre Aumont. There, she made a handful of French and Italian adventure films before her death in 1951 at the age of 34. Lightly toned and creased. Pinholes at left from album binding. Otherwise in fine condition.
