    Description

    A Mary Miles Minter Signed Sepia Photograph, Circa 1916. An original print with a matte finish, depicting the young star in an innocent-looking pose, signed in black fountain pen ink on the lower left side "Sincerely / Mary / Miles / Minter;" Minter now being best remembered not for her numerous silent film roles but for her involvement in the 1922 scandal that surrounded the murder of director William Desmond Taylor; the murder was never solved but Minter nonetheless got dragged through the mud as she was assumed to be having an affair with the much older Desmond; sadly, the insinuations and gossip ruined her film career and she ended up living the rest of her life in obscurity. (Please note there is surface dirt and yellowing, there are pin holes in all corners, and there is slight paper loss on the two lower corners.)
    9 1/2" x 7 1/2"
