Autographed note signed - on the reverse side of a picture postcard of Paris, 5,75 x 4 inch, in French, to a gentleman - Darvi thanks the recipient for some clothing that he had designed for her, written and signed in blue ink "Bella Darvi", attractively mounted (removable) for fine display with a photograph, shows Darvi in a beautiful close-up portrait (altogether 8,25 x 11,75 inch), with very mild signs of wear - in fine to very fine condition. Bella Darvi`s brief film career was one of Hollywood`s great disaster stories. "Discovered" in a Monaco casino by producer Darryl F. Zanuck, Darvi was whisked off to Hollywood in 1953 and put into three expensive productions, despite a complete lack of acting experience. Although she was awarded a Golden Globe for most promising newcomer, her films were critical and financial duds, and Darvi soon returned to Europe, where she went back to doing what she liked best: drinking and gambling. Every so often she would importune Zanuck for funds to bail her out of her latest gambling losses, but following Zanuck`s refusal to send her additional money in 1971 she committed suicide at age 43.
