Billie Burke Wizard of Oz “The Good Witch” Signed Photo

23 Jun

Practically nonexistent vintage matte-finish 7.25 x 9 photo of Burke as Glinda the Good Witch of the North, signed and inscribed in fountain pen to the wife of character actor I. Stanford Jolley, “To Emily Jolly, May your dearest wish come true, Billie Burke, 1940.” Lightly trimmed edges, some scattered light bends and creases to edges and background, and some light surface marks, otherwise fine condition.

Burke was 54 years old when she was chosen in 1938 to play the role that would immortalize her: Glinda. Although Burke lived to be 85 years old and was considered a prolific signer, signed photos of Glinda are especially scarce, with this portrait being just one of a scant handful we have offered in over 30 years. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
