Cat. #00151114: RICHARD HAYDN

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rather scarce vintage signature in felt-tip marker on a 3x5-inch tan card, acquired by actor and collector Peter Hansen in the early 1970s.  In very good condition, with just a hint of toning.  English-born character actor Richard Haydn excelled at playing slick, impeccably dressed cads or condescending misanthropes.  Among his many memorable roles are those of Professor Oddley in Ball of Fire (1941), Roger in No Time for Love (1943), Thomas Rogers in And Then There Were None (1945), Emperor Franz Josef in The Emperor Waltz (1948), the Caterpillar in Disney's Alice in Wonderland (1951), Professor Summerlee in sci-fi's The Lost World (1960), and Maximillian Detweiler in The Sound of Music (1965).
