JANET GAYNOR

JANET GAYNOR. Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white full-length lobby still portrait from A Star Is Born (1937), signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint ink, “To John/Janet Gaynor.” Fine condition, with the ink a shade light but readable, although somewhat difficult to discern in the accompanying scan. A Star Is Born is generally considered the peak performance in Janet Gaynor’s sound-film career, garnering her an Oscar nomination. This is the only signed portrait from the film that I have ever seen.
