Two more signed 8" x 10" pictures of Patricia "Mrs Artman2112" Ellis I've acquired within the past few months.
OK now to TRY and explain the "Pannytoes" reference in the title...when my niece was little she LOVED playing dress up and of course always wanted to wear Pantyhose, but being as she was like 3 she called them "Pannytoes", so of course the whole family calls them that to this day! Anyway imagine my delight and joy when I see Mrs Artman sporting REAL Pannytoes...that is, pantyhose with the toes exposed!!
I love when vintage stills come with these little blurbs attached to the back!

Patricia Ellis's 3rd and final uncredited appearance was in the 1932 WB production "Central Park", starring Joan Blondell and Wallace Ford. Patricia has one scene about 35 minutes into the film with perennial gangster character actor Harold Huber. Its 57 minutes of pure WB B-film and they throw in everything but the kitchen sink, plus we get Guy Kibbee to boot!

Patricia Ellis aka Mrs Artman's first listed appearance on film is an uncredited role in WB's classic pre-code Melodrama "Three on a Match"...until now I had never made the effort to find her but tonight the all-seeing Artman eye spied her brunette lovleliness 12 minutes into the film! I'm sure we can now all rest easier knowing this information is now out there on the webbernet!

Beautiful, talented, but sadly underappreciated nowadays, she turns 90 years old today.
Eleanor steals the show in "Scaramouche"
from "The Naked Jungle" one of her best films of the 50's
Eleanor rarely ever looked the same from film to film.
Below are some vintage signed stills I own.
From a vintage postcard.
From "Detective Story" with Kirk Douglas, the first time I ever saw her.
In "Pride of the Marines" with John Garfield, the 2nd film of hers I ever saw...I was a goner after that!
