Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001408831: EARLE A. FOXE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale green album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collector Rosanne Deerdorff Ochoa in 1935.  In good condition, with two patches of staining left by magazine images affixed to the prior page in the same album.  Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the autograph here is not actually included with the signed item.  After a stint in silent comedies, tall, imposing Earle A. Fox racked up almost 175 silent and early talkie credits as one of Hollywood's best-loathed sophisticated, menacing villains, perhaps most notably in John Ford's Four Sons (1924).  He is considered by critics a sort of prototype for Lew Cody, Adolphe Menjou, Roy D'Arcy, Rod LaRocque, Stuart Holmes, Nils Asther, Lowell Sherman, William Powell, and Erich von Stroheim.
