Cat. #00177412: PAUL MUNI

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in 1940 and decoated with a magazine image. In good condition, with light toning in spots. Leading man Paul Muni, who excelled at playing historical figures of great authority, won an Oscar for The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936) and was nominated five more times, for The Valiant (1929), I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang (1932), Black Fury (1935), The Life of Emile Zola (1937), and The Last Angry Man (1957). Dubbed "The New Lon Chaney" at the onset of his career, owing to his astounding ability to transform himself into an assortment of hideous and exotic characters, he was elsewhere memorable in Seven Faces (1929), Scarface (1932), Bordertown (1935), The Good Earth (1937), Juarez (1939), and Angel on My Shoulder (1946).
