Highly rare and terrific vintage 8x10-inch sepia-tone matte-finish portrait, dating to the early 1940s, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen. In very good condition, with some minor dents to the left-hand border, well away from the writing and barely impacting the image itself. Among character actor Barton MacLane's countless film credits were numerous horror, sci-fi and fantasy films, including The Walking Dead (1936), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), The Mummy's Ghost (1944), Cry of the Werewolf (1944), and Unknown Island (1948). His highlights elsewhere included The Prince and the Pauper (1937), The Maltese Falcon (1941), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948), and The Glenn Miller Story (1954), and as General Paterson on T.V.'s "I Dream of Jeannie" (1965-1969).
