MARIAN NIXON. Sepia tone 7.25 x 10 chest-up book-weight portrait, with printed biography below, removed from the 1930 edition of “Stars of the Photoplay, ” boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “For John -/Best wishes of/Marian Nixon.” Image by Preston Duncan. Fine condition, with a few very mild handling bends in the borders. A pencil notation along the top right edge indicates that this image was signed in person in January 1963. The versatile leading lady of the silent screen made a successful transition to talkies, retiring in 1936 shortly after her marriage to director William Seiter.
