Los Angeles: RKO Radio Pictures, 1943. 8 1/4” x 10”. Signed and inscribed by actress Patricia Morison, “Patricia Morison.” The photo shows the lovely Miss Morison with actor, John Garfield, in a tense encounter from a scene in the 1943 film noir adaptation of the novel by Dorothy B. Hughes. Fine condition. Fallen Sparrow had a screenplay by Warren Duff, was directed by Richard Wallace, and starred Patricia Morison, John Garfield, Maureen O’Hara, Walter Slezak, and Martha O’Driscoll. It was nominated for an Oscar for Best Music, Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy Picture. Patricia Morison was known as the actress with the longest hair in Hollywood (39” long) and was promoted by Universal as a 'rival' to Dorothy Lamour when she changed her hairstyle to a middle parting. She appeared as the terrifically elegant villainess opposite Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in the Sherlock Holmes film Dressed to Kill (1946), and became a Broadway star when Cole Porter chose her to play the lead in his classical musical, Kiss Me, Kate.
