Cat. #0016731733: VICTOR MCLAGLEN

Tough to acquire vintage 8x10-inch black and white publicity portrait for Call Out the Marines (1941), boldly signed in green fountain pen around the time of the film. In fine condition for its age, with a minor surface crack to the left side and a light diagonal crease in the upper left-hand corner area. Rambunctious British prizefighter-turned-silent leading man-turned-character actor Victor McLaglen snagged an Oscar for The Informer (1935) and also was nominated for The Quiet Man (1952) nearly two decades later. He was elsewhere memorable in The Beloved Brute (1924); The Unholy Three (1925) with Lon Chaney; Beau Geste (1926); Hangman's House (1928); The Gay Caballero (1932); The Lost Patrol (1934) with Boris Karloff; Murder at the Vanities (1934); The Great Hotel Murder (1935); Ali Baba Goes to Town (1937); Gunga Din (1939); Captain Fury (1939); Fort Apache (1948); She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949); Rio Grande (1950); Prince Valiant (1954); Around the World in Eighty Days (1956); and Sea Fury (1958).
