    Mae Clarke Collection of 19 Original Still Photos and 1933 Telegram from Fanny Brice. This excellent lot of 19 original 8" x 10" b&w still photographs feature the fabulous Mae Clarke in Universal and MGM publicity shots, two steamy scenes from James Whale's Impatient Maiden (1932), one scene from Three Wise Girls (1932), candid poses at her home in Hollywood, with her dogs, with makeup man Don Cash, in publicity shots for the James Cagney comedy Great Guy (1936), riding in a Rolls Royce, and proudly standing next to her Buick coupe in a publicity shot for Parole Girl (1933). Several of the photos include Clarke's handwritten annotations on the reverse. The lot also includes a Western Union telegram, dated March 3, 1933, one page, 8" x 6", from Fanny Brice to Clarke, in which her ex-sister-in-law refers to an accident in which Clarke was involved. Clarke's first husband (out of three) was Lewis Brice. A few photos have minor chipping on the corners and borders; otherwise, all are in Fine condition.
