JANE WYMAN

JANE WYMAN. Original vintage 8×10 glossy black and white three-quarter length publicity portrait, by Bert Six, for Cheyenne (1947), boldly signed in later years in black felt tip ink. Fine condition, with an original studio snipe affixed to the reverse side; and scattered handling bends, visible only in the borders when the photograph is viewed head on and otherwise not substantially detracting from overall appearance. During the first decade of her lengthy career, Jane Wyman graduated from unbilled bit roles to second leads in countless assembly-line comedies, frequently in support of Jack Carson and Dennis Morgan. By the mid-1940s, she began to move into more serious fare, winning an Oscar for her performance in Johnny Belinda (1948) and additional nominations for The Blue Veil (1951) and Magnificent Obsession (1954). She capped her career starring in the long-running prime-time series, “Falcon Crest.”
