Cat. #0011659: HOWARD DA SILVA

Vintage black felt-tip signature on a 3x5-inch tan card, attained by inveterate collector Hirsch Cohen in 1974. In very good condition and ideal for matting with a favorite photograph. Before having his career decimated by the McCarthy Commission, character actor Howard Da Silva was played tough-talking hotheads in films like Marie Antoinette (1938), Abe Lincoln in Illinois (1940), The Sea Wolf (1941), Sergeant York (1941), The Lost Weekend (1945), The Blue Dahlia (1946), They Live by Night (1948), The Great Gatsby (1949), and, later in life, the cult favorite Mommie Dearest (1981).
