FLORENCE RICE. Vintage 1930s 4.7 x 6.7 matte finish black and white chest-up portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “My/Best wishes/To/Eroic Moorhouse/From/Florence/Rice.” Fine condition, with very slightly trimmed borders and mounting remnants on the reverse side. The wholesome ingenue spent a decade in Hollywood — from 1935 to 1944 — appearing in over 40 films, mostly light comedies. Not being called on to be much more than agreeable and pretty, she was never able to make much of a dramatic impact.
