Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00132242: JAMES DUNN

Bold vintage inscribed pencil signature on a 4x6-inch pale blue autograph album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collector Rosanne Deerdorff Ochoa in 1935 and decorated with a small magazine image.  In very good condition.  Affable character actor James Dunn was unforgettable as ill-fated, pipedreaming inebriate Johnny Nolan in A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945), a complex and moving performance which earned him an Academy Award.  He was elsewhere memorable in Bright Eyes (1934) and Baby Take a Bow (1934) with Shirley Temple; Hearts in Bondage (1935); and The Living Ghost (1942).
