My Ann Dvorak collection could probably be described as substantial. It mainly consists of photos, lobby cards, and posters, but I’ve also picked up a few odd ball items over the years. I think this is one of the more unique pieces.
This card would have come out of machine at an arcade or some other place of amusement. I’m not sure if it would have been a machine with an animatronic fortune teller lady, like in the movie Big – but I sure hope so. On one side is a portrait of our Divine Ms. D and some biographical information. If that weren’t enough excitement, on the other side is a lengthy fortune stating the cardholder cares for all that is not abused and trampled upon by others.
Is there anything as cool as 1930s movie memorabilia?
