Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage inscribed blue fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch white card, acquired in-person by inveterate collector John Virzi in the late 1950s and decorated with a book image. In very good condition. After fleeing Hitler's Germany in the 1930s, small, wide-eyed, soft-spoken Rudolph Anders played Nazis and other villains in films like Confessions of a Nazi Spy (1939), The Mortal Storm (1940),  Charlie Chaplin's The Great Dictator (1940), To Be or Not to Be (1942), Sherlock Holmes and the Voice of Terror (1942), Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon (1942), They Got Me Covered (1943), Watch on the Rhine (1943), The Strange Death of Adolf Hitler (1943), and The Hitler Gang (1944), sometimes credited as Robert O. Davis. After the War ended, he found new work in the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres, memorable in Phantom from Space (1953), The Snow Creature (1954), She Demons (1958), and Frankenstein-- 1970 (1958).
