Sylvia Sidney

Sylvia Sidney was a leading actress in many movies of the 1930s and 1940s, and then transitioned to tv in guest-starring roles on dozens of shows from the 1950s through the 1970s. Among her memorable feature roles: 'Winnie Verloc' in Alfred Hitchcock's "Sabotage" (1936) and 'Joan Taylor' in Fritz Lang's "You Only Live Once" (1937).

I sent this photo to Ms. Sidney in 1981, to her Connecticut residence, and she returned it within one week.
