JULIE HAYDON

JULIE HAYDON. Vintage 1930s 7.5 x 9.5 glossy sepia tone full-length publicity portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “Hello, /Thanks/&/Cheerio to/Lee Nale/Sincerely/Julie Haydon.” Fine condition, with slightly trimmed borders and scattered mild handling ends in the background, minimally detracting from the overall appearance of the image. The talented and beautiful actress found little success in Hollywood, appearing in a handful of forgettable films through 1937. Her best-remembered film, The Scoundrel (1935), opposite Noel Coward, was just as lousy as the rest of them. She found greater success onstage, her greatest triumph coming when she created the role of Laura in The Glass Menagerie in 1944.
