BARBARA NICHOLS

Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white full-length portrait from The George Raft Story (1961), boldly signed and inscribed in turquoise fountain pen, “To Jorge Guy/My best wishes/Sincerely/Barbara Nichols.”  Fine condition, with creasing along the bottom edge and a resultant small area of emulsion loss at the bottom left corner, slightly detracting from overall appearance but easily matted out.  Shapely and brassy-voiced, character actress Barbara Nichols played blonde bimbos, both comic and sad, in scores of films and television series until her death at age 46 in 1976. Signed photographs are extremely scarce.
