HUGH O’CONNELL

Vintage 7.2 x 9.3 glossy black and white half-length studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To/Harry Wilkinson/with my sincere/good wishes/Hugh O’Connell.”  Very good conditions, with the usual assaults perpetrated by this passionate but very careless collector, including trimmed borders and scattered overall light creasing, somewhat heavier at the bottom two corners.  Character actor Hugh O’Connell appeared in 40 films prior to his death of a heart attack at age 44 in 1943. Signed photographs are quite uncommon.
