Cat. #005501: H.B. WARNER

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce and quite early 4 x 6.75-inch black and white portrait clipped from a movie magazine, signed in black fountain pen for inveterate collector Mabel White in 1912, at the very onset of the star's career. Two minor mailing folds; otherwise, in good condition for its age. Veteran silent and early talkie character actor H.B. Warner is probably best remembered for his portrayal of druggist Mr. Gower in the holiday classic It's a Wonderful Life (1946). He made several other contributions to the horror, sci-fi and fantasy genres, with roles in The Ghost Breaker (1914); the crazed ape picture Stark Mad (1929); Supernatural (1933); Lost Horizon (1937), for which he was nominated for an Oscar; Topper Returns (1941); The Devil and Daniel Webster (1942); and Savage Drums (1951).
