Size: 3,5 x 5,5 cm. Good condition.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Born Ludmila Babková, she studied acting at Prague Conservatory and got her first movie role in a Czech film at the age of 17. After being discovered by talent scouts for the German movie studios, Lídá Baarova left Prague for Berlin.

Lída Baarová met Joseph Goebbels while working for Ufa films. They started a passionate love affair which lasted for over a year and caused her breakup with Gustav Fröhlich.

After Goebbels' wife Magda, learned about this affair, she complained to Adolf Hitler. Hitler, who himself was not immune to Baarová's beauty, was the godfather of Goebbels' children, and sympathetic towards Magda; he asked Goebbels to end the affair. Goebbels offered his resignation instead. He wanted to divorce his wife, marry Lída Baarová, and leave Germany with his Liduška, (Czech diminutive of Lída, connoting love), as he affectionatedly called her, for Japan. However, Hitler did not accept his resignation. On October 15, 1938, Joseph Goebbels attempted suicide. Shortly afterwards, Lída Baarová received a call from the German police that she was a persona non grata and was given consilium abeundi to leave Germany.
