ERIK RHODES. Vintage 8×10 glossy black and white chest-up RKO lobby still portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To John/Best wishes/Erik Rhodes.” Fine condition, with mild creasing in the top left corner. With his facility for foreign accents, character actor Erik Rhodes played excitable, addled Continental types in a dozen of so films of the 1930s, most memorably in Top Hat (1935). Thereafter, he was seen onstage and occasionally on television for an additional 35 years.
