#901 - Wizard of Oz: Judy Garland Estimate: $6,000+

Gorgeous 1939 portrait of a young Garland, presented to a 'munchkin' from the Wizard of Oz

Absolutely stunning vintage matte-finish 8 x 10 photo of a 17-year-old Judy Garland, signed and inscribed in fountain pen for a fellow castmate from The Wizard of Oz, "For Billy—The 'Roller-bowl kid'—Wishing you loads of luck for 1939, I know you'll have it! Sincerely, Judy.” In very fine condition, with one tiny pin hole in the top border.

Billy Curtis (1909-1988) was a film and television actor with dwarfism who had an uncredited role as a Munchkin city father in The Wizard of Oz. Curtis enjoyed a five-decade career in the entertainment industry, which includes parts in Alfred Hitchcock's Saboteur and Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter. Accompanied by four photos of Dorothy's first encounter with the townspeople of Munchkinland, with one signed in blue ink by Curtis, who can be viewed most prominently standing to the immediate left of the 'Certificate of Death' sign. A fabulous portrait of Garland from her most formative and iconic period as an actress, with her thoughtful inscription to a fellow member of the Wizard of Oz cast making this a remarkable vintage rarity.
