Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather uncommon vintage heavy pencil signature on a 4x6-inch pale grey autograph album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collector Rosanne Deerdorff Ochoa in 1935. In very good condition. During a career that spanned over five decades, character actor Robert Barrat appeared in over 150 films, typically portraying strong-willed authority figures or thuggish heavies.  Remembered by fans of the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres for his key supporting roles in Secret of the Blue Room (1933), Charlie Chan in Honolulu (1938), Strangler of the Swamp (1946), and Flight to Mars (1951), his better work in other genres included Baby Face (1933), Tugboat Annie (1933), The Kennel Murder Case (1933), Wonderbar (1934), Upperworld (1934), Return of the Terror (1934), The Dragon Murder Case (1934), Captain Blood (1935), The Trail of the Lonesome Pine (1936), The Last of the Mohicans (1936), The Charge of the Light Brigade (1936), The Life of Emile Zola (1937), The Buccaneer (1938), Marie Antoinette (1938), The Adventures of Mark Twain (1944), The Keys of the Kingdom (1944), They Were Expendable (1945), Road to Utopia (1946), Road to Rio (1947), Joan of Arc (1948), Distant Drums (1951), and Son of Ali Baba (1952).
