Her biggest stage success was in The Cradle Snatchers (1925-1926) as a woman who left her husband for a young lover: acting newcomer Humphrey Bogart! Returning to films in character roles after 1930, she found success in Ruggles of Red Gap (1935), The Woman (1939) and Pride and Prejudice (1940). Lightly toned, chipped, creased and bowed. Light tears at bottom corners. Light paper loss in bottom left corner. Signature has low contrast in places but is legible. Lightly worn and rounded corners.
