Cat. #00576321: GORDON WESTCOTT

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely rare vintage inscribed pencil signature on a 3.25 x 5-inch portion of a pale pink autograph album page, acquired in-person by inveterate collector Rosanne Deerdorff Ochoa in 1935-- the year of his death-- and decorated with a magazine image.  In good condition.  Tough-talking, good-looking Gordon Westcott showed real promise in films like Queen Kelly (1929), Enemies of the Law (1931), The Crime of the Century (1933), Voltaire (1933), Murder in the Clouds (1934), The Case of the Howling Dog (1934), A Night at the Ritz (1935), and This Is the Life (1935) before his tragic death at age 31, of injuries sustained after being hurled from a horse during a polo match.  This is just the third example of his autograph we have ever encountered.
