Unusually early vintage 8x10-inch matte-finish silver-tone portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in about 1938. In fine condition, with slight mounting remnants on the reverse side; a small area of mild waviness along a portion of the right border; and portions of the writing penned against the dark background, but quite readable. Rocky (1976) star Burgess Meredith, who so famously portrayed the Penguin on the "Batman" T.V. series of the 1960s, made several other contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres, including five classic episodes of "The Twilight Zone", Beware! The Blob (1972), Burnt Offerings (1976), and Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983).
