Cat. #0010401122: CHARLES COBURN

Bold vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1943, in the year of his wonderful appearance in Heaven Can Wait (1942)-- perhaps his best-loved part-- and decorated with a small magazine image. In good condition, with minor surface crinkles and very slightly uneven trimming to the bottom edge. Irascible Charles Corburn 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).
