    Signed Sketches of Al Jolson, Jeanette MacDonald, Tallulah Bankhead, and More! This truly impressive Robert Whittington series of autographed sketches includes Al Jolson (in blackface, a la The Jazz Singer), Jeanette MacDonald (from her seductive early 1930s era) and an alluring Tallulah Bankhead - as well as Lillian Harvey , Dorothy Dickson. Lillian Foster and Alec B. Francis. The Jolson shot is particularly evocative of its era, as The Jazz Singer introduced Sound to Hollywood films. Offbeat and charming images and autographs from several legendary stars (and a few sadly forgotten ones). Excellent condition.
