Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001040331: RONALD COLMAN

Uncommonly early black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch light green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1920s or early 1930s by inveterate collector Saul Goodman and decorated with a small magazine image. Silent movie actor Charles Farrell signs in blue fountain pen on the verso. In fine condition for its age, with some minor surface creases. British-American stage and film star Ronald Colman first gained fame as the romantic lead in classic silents like The White Sister (1923), Romola (1924), Stella Dallas (1925), and Beau Geste (1926). With his cultivated, expressive voice, he made a smooth transition to sound pictures, memorable in Bulldog Drummond (1929), Condemned (1929), Bulldog Dummond Strikes Back (1934), Arrowsmith (1931), A Tale of Two Cities (1935), Lost Horizon (1937), The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), If I Were King (1938), Random Harvest (1942), and A Double Life (1947), for which he earned an Academy Award.
