  • A fantastic signed photograph of a young Judy Garland - "the greatest entertainer who ever lived"

American actress Judy Garland (1922-1969) is best remembered for her role as Dorothy in 1939's The Wizard of Oz, in which she sang Somewhere Over the Rainbow. A childhood star, she went on the become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood, and was described by Fred Astaire as "the greatest entertainer who ever lived". Her memorabilia, especially items from her youth, is extremely collectible, fuelled by high demand caused by her early death.

This 10" x 8" photograph of a young Garland is signed: "To Dick - Best wishes always, Judy". The autograph is placed in a clear space of the photo, written in fluid black ink.

The image shows Garland in a calf-length double-breasted overcoat, tucked-in scarf, white socks, black flat shoes and broad-brimmed hat. The hat is secured with a ribbon, which Garland holds playfully with her thumb. Neat tendrils of curls cascade from underneath the hat. The actress' direct gaze and lack of background detail makes her the absolute focus of the photograph.

The photograph is in excellent condition, with minor surface creases and light smudging.
