JACK LA RUE

Smiling, youthful 5×7 double-weight glossy black and white chest-up portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in turquoise fountain pen, “Alright Johnny/Always the gun/Jack La Rue.”  Very fine condition.  A pencil notation on the reverse side indicates that this autograph was obtained in person in June 1961.  John Verzi collection.  The usually scowling big screen bad guy appeared in nearly 140 films over a five-decade acting career.
