ALICE GHOSTLEY

ALICE GHOSTLEY. Glossy 8×10 black and white chest-up portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black felt tip ink, “For Robert -/with gratitude/Sincerely/Alice Ghostley.” Fine condition, with mild border creasing and a few very faint thumbing bends and surface impressions that do not noticeablely detract from overall appearance. The idiosyncratic comic character actress played drab, clumsy, or cynical matrons in scores of television series over a six-decade career, perhaps most memorably portraying Aunt Clara on the popular television series “Bewitched, ” and also had supporting roles in such films as The Graduate (1967) and Grease (1978).
