Billie Dove (May 14, 1903 – December 31, 1997), American actress, vintage silver print postcard.  

As a teen, she worked as a model to help support her family and was hired as a teenager by Florenz Ziegfeld to appear in his Ziegfeld Follies Revue. She legally changed her name to Lillian Bohny in the early 1920s and migrated to Hollywood, where she began appearing in silent films. She soon became one of the most popular actresses of the 1920s, appearing in Douglas Fairbanks' smash hit Technicolor film 'The Black Pirate' (1926), 'Rodeo West in The Painted Angel' (1929), and was dubbed 'The American Beauty' (1927), the title of one of her films.

She married the director of her seventh film, Irvin Willat, in 1923. The two divorced in 1929. Dove had a huge legion of male fans, one of her most persistent being Howard Hughes. She had a three-year romance with Hughes and was engaged to marry him, but she ended the relationship without ever giving cause. Hughes cast her as a comedian in his film 'Cock of the Air' (1932). She also appeared in his movie 'The Age for Love' (1931).

Verso bears original graphics, else blank and clean. In very good condition.
