Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Unusually early 3.5 x 5.5-inch double-weight color-tinted English postcard portrait, with embossed decorative borders, boldly signed in black fountain pen in the late 1920s or early 1930s. In fine condition, with a single tack hole, and small rust stains at the center of the top and bottom borders. 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.
