    Vintage Photos of Three Leading Ladies of Horror. A trio of beautiful actresses who made their mark in classic horrors: Mary Nolan, "Maizie" of Lon Chaney's West of Zanzibar; Patsy Ruth Miller, "Esmeralda" of Chaney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame; and Madge Bellamy, "Madeleine" of Bela Lugosi's White Zombie. The Nolan and Bellamy portraits are 11" x 14" and each bears the stamp en verso of noted photographer Edwin Bower Hesser of New York; the MIller shot is 9" x 12" with original stamp (torn) en verso. The Mary Nolan picture identifies her en verso in pencil as "Imogene Wilson," her stage name from her era as a Ziegfeld Girl. The Bellamy picture is color-tinted. Gorgeous portraits in overall Very Fine condition. No wonder these ladies tempted the horror stars.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
