Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #005802: WARREN WILLIAM

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce, dapper-looking vintage 7.75 x 9.75-inch black and white portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in indigo fountain pen in-person for inveterate collector Rae Sargent in the 1930s. In good condition, overall, but priced to reflect slight trimming to the borders and a minor crease to the area of his hat brim, just blow the autograph. Good-looking Warren William excelled at playing slick, reptilian bad boys throughout the pre-Code days of the early 1930s.  Later, he would portray a string of B-movie gumshoes, including Philo Vance, Perry Mason, Ted Shayne, and The Lone Wolf. He is remembered by horror fans for his role as Dr. Lloyd in The Wolf Man (1941), filmed only a few years before his tragic death of multiple myeloma at the age of 53.
