Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #0016731431: LEO MCCAREY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Exceptionally rare vintage blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch pink autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1950s and decorated with a small magazine image. In good condition, with minor toning to the tape affixing the clipping. Just the third example we have encountered in over 35 years! Wonderful director Leo McCarey-- who gave the world Laurel and Hardy and the earliest Our Gang shorts-- won Oscars for The Awful Truth (1937) and Going My Way (1944), and is also remembered for films like Duck Soup (1933), the heartbreaking masterpiece Make Way for Tomorrow (1937), The Bells of St. Mary's (1945), and An Affair to Remember (1957).
