JAN STERLING. Provocative, leggy 1950s 8×10 glossy full-length black and white studio portrait, boldly signed in later years in black felt tip ink. Very fine condition. After a decade of stage work in which she played ingenues and well-bred British lasses, Sterling came to Hollywood and hit her stride playing hard-bitten bad girls throughout the 1950s in such films as Caged (1950), Ace in the Hole (1951), and Female on the Beach (1955). She won an Academy Award nomination for her performance in The High and the Mighty (1954).
