Classic Entertainment Autographs


Scarce vintage black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1944, the year he played Cleghorn in The Invisible Man's Revenge. In good condition. Great British character actor Halliwell Hobbes appeared in over 100 films from 1929 on, frequently cast as stuffy butlers or dignified authority figures.  He is remembered by horror and sci-fi fans for his key supporting roles in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1931), Double Door (1934), Dracula's Daughter (1936), The Undying Monster (1942), and The Invisible Man's Revenge (1944). He was also memorable in Sherlock Holmes Faces Death (1943), alongside Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.
