ncommon 1930s vintage 3.5 x 5.5 glossy black and white three-quarter length portrait, boldly signed in black fountain pen, “Best wishes/Claude Allister.”  Very fine condition. The lanky, supremely annoying character actor portrayed upper-class British twits in scores of British and Hollywood films of the 1930s and 1940s. He is seen here with his ubiquitous monocle and cigarette holder, although sans his customary tuxedo.
