Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/Fondly/'Honey Chile'/Patricia Wilder". B/w, 8x10. Moving from Georgia to New York as a teen-ager intent on becoming a star, Patricia Wilder (1913-1995) found a patron in Bob Hope, appearing in his shows and films (Walking on Air, 1936; Little Miss Broadway, 1938; Thanks for the Memory (1939). She was particularly popular in comic dialogues with hope on his radio show. Hope called her "Honeychile," and the name stuck. Wilder never had more than bit parts in films, but was frequently mentioned in the society columns. She is said to have been the model for Truman Capote's Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's. In 1949 Wilder married into money (twice), the second time to Prince Fritz Alexander Hohenlohe, and exchanged her entertainment career for a jet set lifestyle. 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. Corners worn and creased. Lightly toned around edges. Otherwise, Fine condition.
