MARION DAVIES

Vintage 8×10 matte finish black and white bust portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To Bonnie Jean Muir/With best wishes/from,/Marion Davies.”  A small bend to the bottom right corner tip; otherwise very fine condition.  A charming comic actress, Marion Davies’s career was undermined by the heavy-handed publicity and often mediocre scripts selected by her paramour, William Randolph Hearst. Her reputation has really never quite recovered from the savage caricature of her that was presented in Citizen Kane. Authentically signed photographs are quite scarce.
