    Four Photos of Colleen Moore, Two Signed. Credited with having define the look of the "flapper" in Flaming Youth (1923), Colleen Moore was a top silent screen star who had saved her money, retired early, and invested so wisely she was able to indulge her special dream to create a $500,000 doll house, "The Enchanted Castle" (now on display at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry). Here are four portraits of the shrewd and pretty star, including an 8.5" by 12" portrait inscribed and signed in black ink; a 9" x 13" portrait inscribed and signed in white ink; a 10" x 13.5" portrait of her in Dutch girl costume; and an 11" x 14" color-tinted portrait, stamped en verso by famed photographer Clarence S. Bull. Both signed photos (each of which have surface creases, and one of which has a tiny bit of chipping) bear the stamp of photographer Edward Thayer Monroe en verso, and all are in overall Fine condition. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
