Beautiful vintage matte-finish 7.25 x 9.5 photo of a young Garland posing outdoors in an overcoat and hat, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "For Grant, Sincerely, Judy Garland." Cloth-matted and framed to an overall size of 13.5 x 16. In fine condition, with moderate signature contrast.
While this rarely seen photo dates to circa 1939-around the time of Garland's most famous role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz-the signature shows traits of Garland's autograph circa 1941. Within this time, she also appeared in a number of other films, including Andy Hardy Meets Debutante, Little Nellie Kelly, and For Me and My Gal, a 1941 production in which Garland received top billing above the credits and marked her move from teenage starlet to adult star. A scarce image that captures the fresh-faced enthusiasm of the famous actress.
