Black and white publicity picture postcard of Ruth Roland in a cape and tipping her white hat with a feather to the camera.
Picture postcard signed: "Merrily yours/Ruth Roland". B/w, 3¼x5¼. Ruth Roland (1892-1932, born in San Francisco, California) was an American actress with over 210 movie credits and who, at her height, rivaled Pearl White as queen of the movie serials. She started acting at three and had her own vaudeville act by her teens. She got her start in film in 1908 after being spotted by a Kalem Company director. Her big break came with The Red Circle (1915), the first of her 11 serials. Roland reportedly made more money on real estate than acting in serials; this, plus her increasingly imperious set presence, probably caused her to leave films in favor of vaudeville. Roland made several comeback attempts - including the talkie Reno (1930) - but these were unsuccessful. She was mostly forgotten, but also independently wealthy, by her last film, From Nine to Five, in 1935. Lightly bowed. Staple holes at upper middle. 1¼-inch tear at upper right corner through "rs" of yours, not affecting signature. Lightly worn at corners and edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
