Rare early 8x10-inch black and white portrait by Les Franklynn Clark, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen around the time of his film debut in 1934. Some gentle show-through in the left upper corner from a red rubber stamp on the verso and a hint of silvering at the bottom; otherwise, in good condition for its age.
