FERDINAND GOTTSCHALK. Rare vintage 5×7 matte finish black and white chest-up portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To Maude Dill/With heartfelt good wishes/Ferdinand Gottschalk/1929.” Fine condition, with faint silvering in the background. The British playwright and character actor appeared in nearly 70 films between 1930 and 1938, occasionally unbilled but never unnoticeable.
