Cat. #00042233: STANLEY BAKER

Exceptionally rare vintage 9.5 x 7.5-inch glossy black and white bust portrait from an unidentified film, boldly inscribed in black felt-tip marker not long before his untimely death. In fine condition, with a small bend to the lower left corner, slight surface chipping along two edges, a pair of surface bends in the signature area, and faint evidence of tape residue along the left and right sides, resulting in a thin band of yellowing along the right edge. Rugged, virile British actor Stanley Baker was a real man's man, never once heard to murmer, "Oh, my dearest darling," onscreen. He died of lung cancer at age 49, shortly after being knighted for his work in film over more than three decades.
