Inscribed photograph signed: "To Clint,/ Love/ Virginia/ O'Brien" in blue ink. Color, 4x6. Stage, screen and television actress and singer Virginia O'Brien (1919-2001) got her big break in 1939, when she appeared in the Los Angeles stage production of Meet the People. Paralyzed with stage fright, she sang the words to her song with a zombie-like expression that delighted the crowd (who thought it was part of the show) and resulted in O'Brien being known to some fans as "Miss Deadpan". O'Brien, who reprised her role in the 1944 film version of the play, was signed by MGM in 1940, and appeared in a number of other MGM musicals, including Thousands Cheer (1943), DuBarry Was a Lady (1943), The Harvey Girls(1946) and Ziegfeld Follies (1946). After leaving MGM, she appeared in only two more films, Francis in the Navy (1955) and Walt Disney's Gus (1976), preferring to concentrate television and stage work. O'Brien was married to her second husband, actor Kirk Alyn, from 1942 to 1955. Ink notes on verso in unknown hand. Fine condition.
