Classic Entertainment Autographs


The earliest example we have ever encountered-- and the only villainous shot: A vintage 7.5 x 9.5-inch matte-finish portrait from Lonely Wives (1931), about a man who hires a cad to impersonate him with family while he is away having an affair, hilariously playing both roles, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen: "You'd think I was the murderer! Sincerely, Edward Everett Horton Jan 7-31." In fine condition, with the top and left-hand borders fully trimmed, for framing purposes. Fey, easily flustered comic character actor Edward Everett Horton was unforgettable in films like Alice in Wonderland (1933), The Gay Divorcee (1934), The Devil Is a Woman (1935), Top Hat (1935), Shall We Dance (1937), Lost Horizon (1937), Holiday Swing (1938), Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), The Body Disappears (1941), I Married an Angel (1942), Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), and Pocketful of Miracles (1961).
