Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00173131: BULL MONTANA

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage inscribed fountain pen signature on a 1.25 x 6-inch portion of a sheet of lined paper, probably trimmed from a hotel guest book in which it was acquired in-person:  "Best wishes from Bull Montana / Hilton Hotel Dallas Tex / To Mickey 2-9-1931".  Irregularly trimmed at the corners, slightly toned and affixed to a larger slip of pink paper; overall, in good condition for its age.  Note that the image of the star shown alongside the scan of the autograph here is not actually included with the item.  Plug-ugly, gorilla-like wrestler-turned-character actor Bull Montana appeared in scores of silent westerns and serials, and was memorable in several important horror, sci-fi, fantasy, crime, and mystery films, often playing dimwitted thugs or clad in monstrous costumes.  He memorably played the Ape-Man in Lost World (1925) and the Monkey Man in Flash Gordon (1936).
