Original vintage 7.25 x 8.75 glossy black and white half-length publicity portrait from Young and Willing (1962), his screen debut, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To Paul/with best wishes/Ian McShane.”  Fine condition, with scattered very mild handling and thumbing bends; an original studio snipe affixed to the reverse side; and trimmed borders, affecting a few letters of the inscription.  The durable and prolific British actor has enjoyed a successful career in film, television and on the stage, frequently cast in bad guy/tough guy roles.  This is the earliest signed photograph of him that I have ever encountered.
