Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0015412224: TAYLOR HOLMES

TOUGH to acquire vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature, trimmed from a tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s, and later affixed by a collector to a 3x5-inch white index card, to improve the appearance which had been affected by heavy crinkling. In fine condition, beyond the creases. Silent and Golden Age character actor Taylor Holmes was memorable in the films noirs Kiss of Death (1947), Nightmare Alley (1947) and Act of Violence (1949); Joan of Arc (1948) with Ingrid Bergman; Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), as the potential father-in-law of Marilyn Monroe, to whom she remarks, "I don't want to marry your son for his money, I want to marry him for your money;" and as the voice of King Stefan in Disney's Sleeping Beauty (1959).
