Mae West Scintillating Signed Photo!

 

8" x 10" black and white glossy photograph of Mary Jane "Mae" West (1893-1980), inscribed and signed by her as "To / A.F. Nahas / Best Wishes / Mae West." The publicity still shows West garbed in glamorous furs the same color as her platinum white curls, circa 1950s. From her semi-reclining position, West looks at the viewer invitingly under 1" long false eyelashes. A faint reverse ink impression near top mentioned just for accuracy. Near fine condition.

 

Mae West was a boundary-pushing comedienne, actress, singer, and writer firmly anchored in the early twentieth-century vaudevillian tradition. She later emerged as a potent Hollywood sex symbol whose racy inuendoes shocked and delighted pre-censorship audiences. West worked on the stage, television, movies, and radio over her 70-year-long career. The American Film Institute listed West as 15th among the top American female movie stars of all time.

 

Autograph collector Alexander F. Nahas (1920-2016) was born in Marseilles to a missionary family. He later lived in Danbury, Connecticut and became a merchant marine and government bureaucrat.
