Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #001720: JOHN MILJAN

Rather uncommon vintage inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s by an autograph hound named Ethel. In good condition, with one fleck of soiling between the two words of the dedication. After playing handsome, debonair romancers in the silent era, Miljan was reinvented with the advent of sound, increasingly cast as oily, smooth-talking, well-bred villains or no-nonsense authority figures.  His over 200 film credits include the horror films The Phantom of the Opera (1925) and The Terror (1928), Devil's Island (1926), The Jazz Singer (1927), Stark Mad (1929), The Unholy Night (1929), Possessed (1931), The Kid from Spain (1932), The Ghost Walks (1934), Charlie Chan in Paris (1935), The Plainsman (1936), Border G-Man (1938), Juarez (1939), The Devil Game (1941), Samson and Delilah (1949), M (1951), The Ten Commandments (1956), The Wild Dakotas (1957), Apache Warrior (1957), and The Lone Ranger and the Lost City of Gold (1958).
