Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in November of 1931 and decorated with a small magazine image.  Great comic stage and silent movie actor Charlie Murray abandoned a longtime vaudeville act with Ollie Mack to join Biograph in 1912, where he was extremely busy in slapstick comedies, including numerous Keystone Kops and Charlie Chaplin flicks.  In the 1920s, he transitioned to more substantial character roles, memorable in the title role in the first film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz (1925), White Fang (1925), McFadden's Flats (1927), horror's The Gorilla (1927), The Life of Riley (1927), Do Your Duty (1927), and King of Jazz (1930).
