Signature: "Mary Astor", 5x1½ overall, signature 3¾x1¼ (two surfaces). Mary Astor (1906-1987) had a successful silent screen career, costarring with John Barrymore in Beau Brummell (1923) and Don Juan (1926). Her career was threatened by tabloid scandals in the 1930s, including a very contentious divorce, but she moved on to even greater film success in the talking era. She won the 1941 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for portraying chain-smoking concert pianist Sandra Kovak in Warner Bros.' The Great Lie, which starred Bette Davis. That same year, she costarred with Humphrey Bogart in The Maltese Falcon. She wrote five novels; her autobiography and subsequent film memoir were both best sellers. Signature page soiled. Glue stains. Irregular edges. Ink and pencil notes (unknown hand) on attached sheet.
