Vintage 4 x 5.75 matte finish black and white chest-up portrait, signed in blue fountain pen. Fine condition, with very mild waviness along the bottom border and portions of the signature penned against a darker area of the image. John Verzi collection. A major stage actor and star of the German silent screen, Ernst Deutsch fled Germany in 1933, ultimately establishing a sporadic screen career in Hollywood, billed as Ernest Dorian, frequently playing Nazi villains. English-speaking audiences best remember him for his performance as “Baron” Kurtz in The Third Man (1949).
