Cat. #00197512: HENRY O'NEILL

Rather uncommon vintage 5x7-inch sepia-tone portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in green fountain pen in the 1940s.  In very fine condition.  Esteemed character actor Henry O'Neill's height, white hair and dignified demeanor made him the ideal lawyer, doctor, business executive, or stern father, typically warmhearted, but sometimes villainous.  His long list of memorable film credits includes The Man with Two Faces (1934), Madame Du Barry (1934), The Man Who Reclaimed His Head (1934), Black Fury (1935), The Petrified Forest (1936), The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936), the Boris Karloff horror flick The Walking Dead (1936), Anthony Adverse (1936), The Life of Emile Zola (1937), Jezebel (1938), The Amazing Dr. Clitterhouse (1938), The Angels Wash Their Faces (1939), They Drive By Night (1940), Santa Fe Trail (1940), Billy the Kid (1941), Shadow of the Thin Man (1941), Johnny Eager (1941), The Human Comedy (1943), Anchors Aweigh (1945), and Scandal Sheet (1952).
