MARION DAVIES
Vintage MGM photo, inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/from/Marion Davies". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature November 11, 1935. Marion Davies (1897 - 1961) was an American actress whose relationship with William Randolph Hearst was thinly fictionalized in Orson Welles' classic film Citizen Kane (1941). Featured on Broadway in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1916, Davies made her her screen debut in Runaway Romany (1917). While not a great actress, she possessed good comic and musical skills, Welles' caricature notwithstanding. The Hearst newspapers praised her performances extravagantly, while rival newspapers reacted by panning her. Her starring roles extended from Enchantment (1920) to Ever Since Eve (1937), after which she retired to play hostess at Hearst's San Simeon estate and pursue philanthropic interests. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Scattered light surface impressions. Mild spotting to facial area. Otherwise, fine condition.
