Buy it for the frame or the famous 1930's movie star. Destined for stardom when she was just 13, it is said that Alice Faye added three years to her age and in 1928 auditioned as a chorus girl telling them she was 16. But she got her first start as a singer in New York with Rudy Vallee in the early 1930's. Then on to Hollywood where the blue-eyed blonde became a film star. Her first film was produced in 1934 and she became one of Hollywood's biggest stars in the late 1930's. She left the movie life in 1945, coming back some years later for one or two films and then retired. She died in 1998 at the age of 83.
This photo was found recently at the bottom of an old box of family pictures and has been age-matched with one of several vintage cardboard studio frames in my collection. Quite popular in its time, it folds opens and flips backwards to the back of the front and latches with a tab. Wow! Look at those pencil-thin eyebrows. Photo measures 5 x 7-inches. The frame is 7 x 10-inches.
