    Female Horror Stars. Here's a stunning collection of five vintage signatures from heroines, vamps and female monsters who gave slinky charm and/or menace to some of Hollywood's greatest horror films. First, there's Fay Wray, the Beauty who killed the Beast in King Kong. Then there's Olga Baclanova, the evil Cleopatra of Freaks, transformed from glamorous circus star to pathetic "Chicken Woman" in that film's horrific climax; the collector pasted the actress's picture below her name. Then - "She's alive!" - Elsa Lanchester, the hissing Bride of Frankenstein herself; the collector has attached a picture of Elsa below her signature. The blonde and bounteous Ilona Massey, a member of the infamous Frankenstein family in Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man, receives a special tribute - her pencil autograph on a green album page is pasted to a magazine picture of this great beauty, with a tiny ad for an Ilona "in person" appearance glued below her signed name. Finally, there's a candid snapshot of Terry Moore, who charmed Mighty Joe Young and who signed the snapshot in purple ink. Every one of them a Scream Queen! A marvelous collection of autographs of five of the greatest actresses and beauties of Classic Horror. With COA from PSA/DNA.
