Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely rare vintage signature in blue ballpoint pen on a 4x6-inch pale yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in the early 1950s.  In very good condition and ideal for matting.  No one could play the typical British gentleman or gentleman's gentleman better than character actor Lumsden Hare.  Tall and aristocratic, he played Prince Regent in The House of Rothschild (1934) and the King of  Sweden in Cardinal Richelieu (1935), not to mention countless military officers, doctors, and lawyers.  His nearly 200 silent and early talkie credits included the horror classics Svengali (1931), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), The Lodger (1944), and The Four Skulls of Jonathan Drake (1959); Sherlock Holmes (1922) with John Barrymore; Charlie Chan Carries On (1931); The White Sister (1933); She (1935); The Last of the Mohicans (1936); The Life of Emile Zola (1937); A Christmas Carol (1938); Rebecca (1940); Suspicion (1941); This Above All (1942); The Gorilla Man (1943); Jack London (1943); Madame Curie (1943); The Canterville Ghost (1944); The Keys of the Kingdom (1944); A Picture of Dorian Gray (1945); The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (1947); Mr. Peabody and the Mermaid (1948); and 5 Fingers (1952).
