Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00524122: HENRY TRAVERS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely rare vintage signature on a 3x5-inch off-white card, attained in the early 1960s and decorated with an image from the popular book on movie character actors, Who Is That? Toning to the corner tips, where the card was once affixed to an album with photo mounts; otherwise, in fine condition and nice for matting with a favorite photograph. Friendly-faced English character actor Henry Travers is best remembered for his portrayal of bumbling angel Clarence Odbody in the holiday classic It's a Wonderful Life (1946), filmed about half a decade before this photo was autographed. He was elsewhere memorable as Dr. Cranley in the horror classic The Invisible Man (1933), Baron Cesarea in Death Takes a Holiday (1934), Dr. Parsons in Dark Victory (1939), Reverand Smiley in The Rains Came (1939), Dr. Evans in On Borrowed Time (1939), Pa in High Sierra (1941), Mr. Ballard in Mrs. Miniver (1942), Dr. Sims in Random Harvest (1942), Joseph Newton in Shadow of a Doubt (1942), and Horace P. Bogardus in The Bells of St. Mary's (1945).
