Cat. #004411: ERNEST THESIGER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extraordinary 3.25 x 5.25-inch sepia-tone postcard portrait, boldly signed in thick, black indelible pencil in his stage days, in the late 1910s or early 1920s. One of the earliest examples we have ever encountered! In good condition for its age, with gentle edgewear. Gaunt, decidedly melodramatic character actor Ernest Thesiger was unforgettable as Horace Femm in This Old Dark House (1932), Lang in The Ghoul (1933) and-- of course!-- Dr. Pretorius in Bride of Frankenstein (1935), three masterpieces of the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres.
