Rediscovered: Another Bride

Brian Leno pulls another auto from the cast of James Whale’s The Bride of Frankenstein:

Valerie Hobson, also known as Baroness Frankenstein in Universal’s 1935 classic The Bride of Frankenstein

The signature is a little shaky, as it’s on a press photo depicting Hobson helping out with the war effort in Great Britain during the second World War. 

This beautiful lady would enter her own Halloween in real life when her husband, Member of Parliament John Profumo, would admit to sleeping with Christine Keeler, supposedly a prostitute. Heads rolled in the British government over what became known as The Profumo Affair.

After looking at photos of Hobson and Keeler, Profumo was one lucky son of a bitch.
