PATTY McCORMACK. Glossy 8×10 black and white half-length portrait from The Bad Seed (1956), boldly signed in later years in blue felt tip ink. Very fine condition. The perky child actress won an Oscar nomination for her career-defining performance, even if it was in one of the silliest movies ever made, and has continued a steady if slightly low-profile career in film, television and the stage in the ensuing decades.
