EMIL JANNINGS

Vintage 5 x 6.8 double-weight glossy black and white chest-up studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To Lionel Aucoin/with sincerest best wishes/Emil Jannings.”  Very fine condition.  A notation on the reverse side by the original recipient notes that this photograph was obtained in August 1937.  Jannings is quite uncommon in photos larger than postcard size.
