Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather uncommon 5 x 5.5-inch black and white glossy chest-up portrait, boldly signed in-person in blue marker for inveterate collector Mike Bergen.  In good condition, with one or two negligible handling dings and scarcely perceptible trimming to the bottom border.  The craggy-faced character actor of the stage and screen began his career playing tough-as-nails cops, in films like Serpico (1973) and All the President's Men (1976), but, by the 1980s, was almost uniformly cast as murderous psychopaths and untrustworthy schemers.  He was unforgettable as underboss Omar Suarez in Scarface (1983); dejected composer Antonio Salieri in Amadeus (1984), for which he snagged an Academy Award; tyrannical Medieval inquisitor Bernardo Gui in The Name of the Rose (1986); mobster Arnold Rothstein in Mobsters (1991); Joseph Stalin in Children of the Revolution (1996); Al Capone in Baby Face Nelson (1996); Ad’har Ru’afo in the sci-fi favorite Star Trek: Insurrection (1998); and crazed collector Cyrus Kriticos in the horror remake Thir13en Ghosts (2001).
