    Description

    New Star Jean Harlow Signs Clifton Webb's Guest Book in 1931 and adds "(Platinum!!)" next to her name- likely a reference to her film Platinum Blonde, released that very year. Harlow appeared in six films in 1931 after getting her first real break in Howard Hughes' Hell's Angels and was well on her way to superstardom. This page from Webb's Guest Book is headed "Port Washington LI," dated June 7, 1931 and other signers include author Margaret Case ("Cuddles") Morgan, Hope Williams, Tallulah Bankhead, Ethel Barrymore, and Beatrice Lillie. The signature at the very top is of H(erbert) W Ross, the founder and editor of the New Yorker. In very good condition with slight edge wear and toning from age.
