MARIA MONTEZ. Vintage 3.5 x 5.5 glossy black and white deckle-edge head and shoulders glamour portrait, boldly signed in blue fountain pen. Very fine condition. The popular and glamorous star of a series of cheesy Universal Technicolor adventures of the 1940s died of a heart attack at age 39. Signed photographs are quite scarce. A notation on the reverse side indicates that this photograph was signed in 1946.
