MARGARET LEIGHTON

Vintage 3.5 x 5.5 matte finish black and white three-quarter length portrait by Armstron Jones, signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To J. H. Dinys/Best wishes/Margaret Leighton.”  Near very fine condition, with the writing uniformly penned against the dark fabric of her gown, readable with moderate contrast.  The distinguished British actress, who died of multiple sclerosis at age 53, was hailed for her stage work in London and New York, garnering two Tony awards and two additional Tony nominations, as well as an Oscar nomination for her performance in The Go-Between (1971), one of two dozen films in which she appeared.
