Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly uncommon vintage blue felt-tip pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale green album page, acquired in-person by a noted film historian, probably in the early 1970s.  In very good condition.  Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the autograph here is not actually included with the signed item.  Highlights of the five-decade career of familiar-faced character actor Walter "Wally" Baldwin, who played toothless, bespectacled, bucolic town folk, train conductors, clerks, physicians, and relatives, included Angels Over Broadway (1940), The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941), In This Our Life (1942), For Me and My Gal (1942), Sweet Rosie O'Grady (1943), I'll Be Seeing You (1944), Murder, He Says (1945), State Fair (1945), horror's Dragonwyck (1946), The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), Mourning Becomes Electra (1946), Cheaper by the Dozen (1950), The Long, Long Trailer (1953), and Interrupted Melody (1955).  He was also the first actor to portray Floyd the barber on T.V.'s "The Andy Griffith Show" (1960).
