Cat. #0003860112: RICHARD ARLEN

Vintage blue fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pink autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1937. In good condition. Silent screen heartthrob Richard Arlen earned a measure of screen immortality by costarring with Buddy Rogers and Clara Bow in the first-ever Oscar-winning picture, Wings (1927). He retained his popularity throughout the 1930s and 1940s, memorable in the horror, sci-fi and fantasy flicks Island of Lost Souls (1932), The Lady and the Monster (1944) and The Phantom Speaks (1945), but when roles became harder to come by in the following decade, he almost entirely abandoned acting, wisely investing in numerous business ventures.
