BASIL RATHBONE (2)

Spectacular vintage 9.75 x 12.75 matte finish black and white half-length MGM publicity portrait by Clarence Sinclair Bull for Romeo and Juliet (1936), boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To Franzi/Cordially/Basil Rathbone.”  About fine condition, with trimmed borders; mounting remnants and a small area of paper thinning on the reverse side; and several handling bends in the background along the top right that detract slightly from overall appearance.  Scarce in oversize format and an outstanding image.
