Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold vintage signature in heavy blue indelible pencil on a 4x6-inch pale yellow autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s. In very good condition for its age.  The timber-toed leading man of the stage and screen's trademark technique involved a mellow, blasé demeanor which belied deep hidden emotion.  He employed it to great acclaim in a wide variety of roles, playing romantic leads, sympathetic strangers, dignified military officers, physicians, and deliciously wicked villains in films like both versions of The Letter (1929, 1940), Alfred Hitchcock's Murder! (1930) and Foreign Correspondent (1940), Ernst Lubitsch's Trouble in Paradise (1932), Blonde Venus (1932), The Little Foxes (1941), The Unseen (1945), and Duel in the Son (1946).  In the 1950s, his hypnotic baritone voice lent credence to several horror, sci-fi and fantasy classics, including Riders to the Stars (1954), Gog (1954) and The Fly (1958).
