Cat. #001351013: MARTIN FAUST

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage day player agreement for Father Husband (1943)-- a film apparently ultimately released under some other name-- boldly signed in fountain pen, alongside the signature of a Samuel Goldwyn studio staff member.  In good condition, with some gentle toning throughout.  No-nonsense stage actor Martin Faust entered films during the silent era, playing physicians, clergymen, judges, counts, and other persons of authority.  With the advent of talkies, he was increasingly relegated to character roles, such as Native Americans, porters, hoodlums, assassins, town folk, cabbies, and waiters in classic films like While Paris Sleeps (1932), The House of Rothschild (1934), Charlie Chan in Paris (1935), Ramona (1936), Tower of London (1939), The House of Seven Gables (1940), The Way of All Flesh (1940), They Died with Their Boots On (1941), Invisible Agent (1942), G-men vs. the Black Dragon (1943), and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves (1944).
