My mother was enchanted by the movie stars of the 1940s--she was young teen and collected photos, studio cards and autographs from as many movie stars and studios as she could. Most of these were thumb tacked to her bulletin board with pride and have a small hole in the top center as a result.
Hedy Lamarr, who was born in Austria as Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler, first came to fame in the Czechoslovakian film "Ecstacy" in which she is shown having an orgasm on screen and appears nude frontally--both unusual and risque for the time. After escaping her controlling German husband in 1937 she came to the US where she worked with Louis B. Mayer and changed her name to Hedy Lamarr, taking the last name from the late and beautiful star Barbara La Marr.
Hedy Lamarr became well known for her roles in many films but was especially known for her role of Delilah in "Sampson and Delilah" a blockbuster of the time.
This card is in fair shape. It has a scratch or bend on the top front and also has some discoloration on the front. Otherwise the photo is undamaged. There is discoloration on the back that is typical for its age. It is 3.25 x 5.5"
I ship the day after I receive payment and I ship everywhere.
