Cat. #00562: ROBERT WARWICK

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce vintage fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch light green autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s.  In good condition.  Robert Warwick, stately matinée idol of the stage and silent screen, made a seamless transition to talkies, playing scores of well-spoken authority figures in films like Night Life of the Gods (1935), The Little Colonel (1935), Mary of Scotland (1936), Romeo and Juliet (1936), The Prince and the Pauper (1937), The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), Essex and Elizabeth (1939), The Sea Hawk (1940), The Great McGinty (1940), Christmas in July (1940), The Lady Eve (1941), and Sullivan's Travels (1941).  He was uncharacteristically cast as the hammy, downtrodden Charlie Westerman in Nicholas Ray's In a Lonely Place (1950) and dying tycoon Amos Kyne in Fritz Lang's While the City Sleeps (1956).  Horror and sci-fi buffs will remember him as Police Commissioner Stevens in the Lionel Atwill favorite Doctor X (1932), Detective Robert Raymond in The Whispering Shadow (1932) with Bela Lugosi, J.B. Masterson in the horror-themed comedy I Married a Witch (1942), and "Leatherbottom" Mackaye on the "Last Flight" episode of T.V.'s "The Twilight Zone" (1960).
