Ruth Hoogstraten] (1960-1980). Model,

Scare Photograph Signed,
being an 8 in. by 10 in. black and white publicity portrait by
Crown International Pictures for her debut feature film, Galaxina.
Boldly signed: "Love- Dorothy Stratten". The
names of the stars are printed along the bottom white margin.
Stratten actually appeared in three movies, Skatetown USA
(1979), Americathon (1979), Autumn Born (1979),
before Galaxina, which was her first feature film. Her
final movie, They All Laughed (1981), finished production
just before her death (It was also the last theatrical motion
picture in which Audrey Hepburn played a lead role). Stratten's
signed items are exceptionally rare and considered one of the
scarcest celebrity signatures of the 20th Century. Minor crease
on upper left blank corner, no other visible nicks or wear. In
very fine condition, and ideal for framing. SOLD
