BARRY K. BARNES

Vintage 3.5 x 5.5 matte finish black and white bust portrait as Sir Percy Blakeney in The Return of the Scarlet Pimpernel (1937), his second and most popular film, signed in blue fountain pen, “Best luck/Barry K. Barnes/1937.”  Fine condition, with mild waviness along the top edge and the writing uniformly penned against darker areas of the image, with only fair signature contrast. Barry K. Barnes appeared in over a dozen films before an illness contracted during service in World War II put an effective end to his acting career.
