Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00149232: SAM HARDY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly rare vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan album page, acquired in-person by an autograph hound in the 1930s. In good condition, with a few flecks of soiling and light toning in spots. Note that the image of the star shown here alongside the scan of the autograph is not included. Sartorial writer and prolific movie character actor Sam Hardy, who died during an intestinal surgery at just 52, is perhaps best remembered for his portrayal of impresario Charles Weston in the horror, sci-fi and fantasy classic King Kong (1933). He was elsewhere noteworthy in The Miracle Woman (1931), The Magnificent Lie (1931) and Little Miss Marker (1934).
