Cat. #00104011222: CHARLES COBURN

Vintage 7.4 x 9.5-inch sepia-tone portrait, shown wearing his ever-present monocle, boldly signed and inscribed to inveterate collector Eric Moorhouse, circa 1940. In good condition, with partially trimmed borders; mounting remnants and slight paper thinning on the verso; and scattered extremely mild handling dings. Irascible Charles Coburn was one of Hollywood's all-time great character actors. He snagged an Academy Award for his standout performance in The More the Merrier (1943) and was elsewhere unforgettable in Boss Tweed (1933), Of Human Hearts (1938), The Story of Alexander Graham Bell (1939), The Devil and Miss Jones (1941), The Lady Eve (1941), In This Our Life (1942), Heaven Can Wait (1943), The Paradine Case (1947), Monkey Business (1952), and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953).
