Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0015452: HAROLD HUBER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1930s. In good condition, with two gentle creases well away from the writing, and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Unforgettable character actor Harold Huber was a fast-talking polyglot whose face was scarred in a fencing accident. He played a plethora of gangsters, hard-nosed detectives and ethnic characters in the 1930s and 1940s, memorable in 20,000 Years in Sing Sing (1932), The Thin Man (1934), horror's Mad Love (1935), San Francisco (1936), The Good Earth (1937), Charlie Chan on Broadway (1937), Charlie Chan in Monte Carlo (1937), Mr. Moto's Gamble (1938), Mysterious Mr. Moto (1938), Beau Geste (1939), Charlie Chan in City of Darkness (1939), Charlie Chan in Rio (1941), and Crime Doctor (1941). Huber died during a surgery at the age of 49 and his autograph is elusive in any format.
