RITA JOHNSON

RITA JOHNSON. Vintage 7.7 x 9.6 matte finish silver tone head and shoulders glamour portrait, circa 1940, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To Eric: -/Best Wishes Always/Rita Johnson.” Fine condition, with slightly trimmed borders; mounting remnants on the reverse side; and very faint silvering around the dark edges of the image. Rita Johnson appeared in several dozen films during a decade-long Hollywood career until an accident in 1948 caused brain damage, severely limiting her ability to perform.
