Black ink stamp in verso. B/w, 7¾x9¾ overall, 7½x9¼ image, one surface, printed on cardstock. De Havilland, (1916-2020), the sister of actress Joan Fontaine, received critical acclaim and Best Actress Academy Awardsfor her roles in To Each His Own (1946) and The Heiress (1949). She was also nominated for an Oscar for Gone With the Wind (1939), of which she is the last surviving star, and for Hold Back the Dawn (1941) and The Snake Pit (1948). In addition to her acting on the stage and screen, de Havilland is known for fighting the studio system. The actress sued Warner Bros. for extending her seven-year contract by tacking on several months for which she had been suspended for refusing to take a part. Although de Havilland spent three years off the screen, she ultimately won her case, and the "De Havilland Law", as it came to be called, ensured that studios were no longer able to engage in the practice of extending contract time. Lightly toned, silvered, creased, bowed and rippled. Signature has low contrast but is legible. Rounded and worn corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
