Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch mustard yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1930s. In good condition and nice for matting. Unforgettable character actor Porter Hall excelled at playing short, fat men of authority with explosive tempers and pompous, unpleasant personages. His long list of classic film credits includes The Thin Man (1934), The Petrified Forest (1936), The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936), Satan Met a Lady (1936), Make Way for Tomorrow (1937), Scandal Street (1938), King of Alcatraz (1938), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), His Girl Friday (1940), Sullivan's Travels (1941), The Miracle of Morgan's Creek (1944), Double Indemnity (1944), Going My Way (1944), Murder, He Says (1945), and-- of course!-- Miracle on 34th Street (1947).
