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

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.

RR Auction Wizard of Oz: Billie Burke signed photo as Glinda the Good Witch

"RR Auction Wizard of Oz: Billie Burke"

RR Auction Wizard of Oz: Billie Burke

Fantastic and 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. “It’s a divine part,” Burke wrote. “There’s child enough in all of us to be thrilled with the settings and feeling of this picture.” She appeared in more than sixty movies before she retired in 1960, but Oz remained her favorite film. One of only of a handful of such photos we have seen, this splendid signed photo of the Good Witch would be a jewel in the crown of any Oz collection. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
