Description

    Donnie Dunagan Archive from "The Forgotten Woman." Donnie Dunagan's follow-up film to Son of Frankenstein at Universal was 1939's The Forgotten Woman, a sublime tear jerker starring Sigrid Gurie, who achieved stardom in such films as 1938's The Adventures of Marco Polo and Algiers, promoted as "the Norwegian Garbo." In fact, as the press soon discovered, much to the detriment of Sigrid's career, she'd been born in Brooklyn. At any rate, Sigrid Gurie was a fine actress and a great beauty who later blamed her Hollywood traumas and three failed marriages for her relatively early death. This collection from The Forgotten Woman boasts a breathtaking 7" x 9" portrait of Ms. Gurie, signed in light blue ink: "To Donnie my nicest little friend wishing you happiness forever. With love Sigrid Gurie." The photo has pin holes in the upper corners and lower right corner, and a chip from the lower left corner, but these don't detract from the lushly glamorous overall effect. The collection also features 11 original stills from the film, all featuring Dunagan, and ranging from fine to very good condition with residue on verso from having been pasted into his scrapbook. There are also two scrapbook pages (four sides) with reviews of the film, publicity stories and a newspaper ad for the film's Los Angeles opening . Fascinating material from Donnie Dunagan's personal collection, and the signed portrait of the hauntingly lovely Sigrid Gurie is a stunner. From the Donnie Dunagan Archive.
