LILY DAMITA. Bold signature in purple fountain pen on a 6×4 white album page. Very fine condition. This signature was part of the John Verzi collection but is one of the autographs that he acquired from another collector. Following a successful career in French and German films during the 1920s, French-born actress Lili (or Lily) Damita relocated to Hollywood in 1929, making only about a dozen more films before retiring in 1937. Thereafter, her stormy marriage to Errol Flynn kept her name in the headlines until their divorce in 1942.
