GEORGE E. STONE

Bold signature and inscription, “To John/Best o’ Luck/Geo. E. Stone,” in black fountain pen on a 6×4 white index card.  Very fine condition, with a small magazine photograph affixed at the top right corner.  Undated on the reverse side, but likely early 1960s.  John Verzi collection.  The prolific character actor appeared in over 150 films during a three-decade career, invariably cast as a petty hood or shifty little weasel. His appearances ranged from Little Caesar (1931) to Some Like It Hot (1959), and included a running appearance opposite Chester Morris in the 1940s Boston Blackie series.
