Cat. #00116612: JOHN DAVIDSON

Scarce vintage signature in fountain pen on a 4 x 5.5-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s.  In very good condition and suitable for matting.  Unforgettable character actor John Davidson, who excelled at playing emotionless, piercing-eyed villains in scores of silent and early talkie films, made a number of contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres, including Tod Browning's The Thirteenth Chair (1929), 6 Hours to Live (1932), Charlie Chan in Egypt (1935), The Devil Bat (1940), The Purple Monster Strikes (1945), and several Republic serials of the late 1930s, including Dick Tracy and Captain Marvel.
