Photoplay was one of the first American film fan magazines, founded in 1911 in Chicago. For most of its run, Photoplay was published by Macfadden Publications.

Signed portraits include: Madge Bellamy, Evelyn Brent (twice), Mary Brian, Betty Bronson, Betty Compson, Leatrice Joy (twice), Ben Lyon, Jack Mulhall, Marian Nixon, Jack Oaklie, Anita Page, Eddie Quillan, Esther Ralston, Barbara Stanwyck, Regis Toomey, Lois Wilson, Claire Windsor, and Loretta Young. Most of the signatures are not dated; the ones that are tend to be from the early to mid 1970's.
