Photograph signed "Cordially/Mary Brian" in blue ink. B/w, 8x10 overall, 7½x9¼ image, one surface. Publicity photo for College Rhythm (1934). ©1934 Paramount Productions. Typed notations on verso: "SHE'S BLONDE NOW - Mary Brian wears a blonde wig and becomes a target for the affections of both Lanny Ross and Jack Oakie in Paramount's 'College Rhythm'.". Brian (1908-2002), an American leading lady and one of the best liked actors in Hollywood during the silent age, got her start as Wendy Darling in Peter Pan (1924) after appearing in a beauty contest the previous year. This role landed her a contract with Paramount, and she went on to appear in over 70 films between 1924 and 1927, including a starring role in Paramount's first all-talkie, The Virginian (1929). Brian's career petered out in the mid-1930s, though she did give a memorable performance as W. C. Fields' daughter in The Man on the Flying Trapeze (1935). She retired from film after 1937, making occasional appearances in low budget movies and television, including a recurring role as Janet Archer in Meet Corliss Archer (1954). Lightly toned, silvered, creased and bowed. Parts of signature have low contrast but are legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
