Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0014613: ROBERT GREIG

Highly scarce blue fountain pen signature on a 4.5 x 5.8-inch light blue album page, acquired in-person in the early 1940s. In good condition. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Rotund Australian-born character actor Robert Greig specialized in playing pompous butlers, but also made a great bloated bureaucrat or slothful aristocrat. His long list of wonderful film credits-- six of which were directed by Preston Sturgess-- include the Marx Brothers' Animal Crackers (1930) and Horsefeathers (1932); Merrily We Go to Hell (1932); The Conquerors (1932); Easy to Love (1934); Madame Du Barry (1934); Les Miserables (1935); Three Live Ghosts (1936); The Great Ziegfeld (1936); Tod Browning's horror gem The Devil-Doll (1936); The Adventures of Marco Polo (1938); Drums Along the Mohawk (1939); Tower of London (1939) with Boris Karloff; The Thief of Bagdad (1940); The Lady Eve (1941); Moon Over Miami (1941); Sullivan's Travels (1941); I Married an Angel (1942); Tales of Manhattan (1942); The Moon and Sixpence (1942); I Married a Witch (1942); The Palm Beach Story (1942); Mr. Parkington (1944); and The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945).
