Highly scarce vintage inscribed blue fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch pale green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the late 1920s or early 1930s. In good condition for its age. Although not a household name, elegant, British-born Crauford Kent was one of early Hollywood's busiest and most recognizable character actors. Typically cast as physicians, attorneys, military men, and other polished authority figures, he occasionally played unsavory "other men" and over-the-top eccentrics. His over 200 silent and talkie film credits included leading or key supporting roles in heaps of horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, and crime classics, including Faust (1917), The Knife (1918), The Guilty One (1924), Seven Keys to Baldpate (1925 and 1929), The Charlatan (1929), The Ace of Scotland Yard (1929), The Unholy Three (1930) with Lon Chaney, In the Next Room (1930), The Second Floor Mystery (1930), Grief Street (1931), The Menace (1932), Sinister Hands (1932), Murder at Dawn (1932), The Thirteenth Guest (1932), The Invisible Man (1933), The Lost Jungle (1934), The Walking Dead (1936), Topper (1937), A Christmas Carol (1938), The Letter (1940), Foreign Correspondence (1940), The Mysterious Doctor (1943), The Lodger (1944), The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945), and The Woman in White (1948).
