Scarce vintage handwritten, signed quotation in black fountain pen, given to an M.G.M. studio staff member on the set of A Tale of Two Cities in 1935: "Never let the same mule kick you twice, H.B. Warner, "A Tale of Two Cities," M-G-M 1935." In good condition. 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).
