Handsome 8x10-inch black and white portrait in his prime, boldly signed with his name alone in black felt-tip pen in the 1980s. In good condition. Tough, taciturn leading man Victor Mature exhibited considerable dramatic ability in John Ford's My Darling Clementine (1946) and the noir classic Kiss of Death (1947). Alas, as his career went on, he was increasingly relegated to exotic roles in historical epics which required little more than the classic good looks he possessed in spades, most notably Samson and Delilah (1949), The Robe (1953), The Egyptian (1954), and Hannibal (1959). His single contribution to the sci-fi and fantasy genres came in 1940, when he starred as the troglodyte Tumak in Hal Roach's One Million B.C.
