Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00038212: HENRY ARMETTA

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage signature in bold pencil on a 4x6-inch pale pink autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1935 by inveterate collector Rosanne Deerdorff Ochoa and decorated with a magazine image.  In good condition, with negligible handling dings.  The friendly-faced character actor played working-class immigrants in scores of Hollywood classics, typically cast as hotheaded Italians or other Latin types.  He is remembered by horror buffs for his portrayals of the Sergeant in the Boris Karloff / Bela Lugosi collaboration The Black Cat (1934) and Signatelli in the Olsen and Johnson horror-themed comedy Ghost Catchers (1944).
