Uncommon vintage 5x7-inch sepia-tone portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in violet fountain pen in the 1930s. In fine condition. Prolific supporting actor Lee Bowman played suave, elegant playboy types in films like Cover Girl (1944) with Rita Hayworth, The Impatient Year (1944) with Jean Arthur and Smash-Up (1947) with Susan Hayward. In the 1950s, he was noteworthy on T.V.'s "The Adventures of Ellery Queen" (1950-1951) before abandoning acting to pursue a political career.
