HARRY GREEN

HARRY GREEN. Vintage 3.5 x 5.5 glossy sepia tone chest-up portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To George W. Haasman/Best wishes/from/Harry Green.” Very fine condition, with the writing penned against the dark fabric of his jacket, but completely readable. Lawyer turned character actor Harry Green appeared in supporting roles in two dozen films during the years 1929-39, making sporadic film and television appearances in the ensuing two decades prior to his death in 1958. With a heavy Yiddish accent, Green was frequently cast in comic roles, most memorably as a penny-pinching movie mogul in the largely forgotten Spencer Tracy musical (!) Bottoms Up (1934) (“Qvick, get me a cheap doctor!!”) Only Golden Age Autographs comes up with this stuff!!
