Cat. #0015051: ROBERT HARRON

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Ultra-scarce vintage 5x7-inch matte-finish sepia-tone chest-up portrait, boldly signed in black fountain pen, circa 1918.  In very good condition, with a diagonal crease running diagonally along the lower right, noticeably detracting from the overall appearance of the image.  Harron entered films at the age of 14, playing bit parts in D.W. Griffith shorts.  He was ultimately promoted to leading man status, collaborating with the director on 220 films, including The Birth of a Nation (1915), Intolerance (1916) and True Heart Susie (1919).  In 1920, he died of a gunshot wound under murky circumstances, aged only 27.
