Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #003291: C. AUBREY SMITH

Uncommonly early black fountain pen signature on a 2.5 x 3.5-inch card dated October of 1911. One of the earliest examples we've encountered, this was taken from a 1910s autograph collection. In good condition. Veteran character actor C. Aubrey Smith, who was uniformly cast as well-bred Englishmen with stiff upper-lips, had starring or supporting roles in a number of horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery films, including The Face at the Window (1920), The Monkey's Paw (1933), Transatlantic Tunnel (1935), Beyond Christmas (1940), Rebecca (1940), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), Flesh and Fantasy (1943), and And Then There Were None (1945).
