J. CARROL NAISH. Vintage 7.5 x 9.5 matte finish sepia tone two-thirds length portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To Eric -/Sincerest good/wishes + kindest/regards -/from/J. Carrol/Naish.” Fine condition, with partially trimmed borders; mounting remnants on the reverse side; and scattered inoffensive emulsification spots in the background, not significantly detracting from overall appearance. One of Hollywood’s most versatile character actors, J. Carroll Naish appeared in over 150 films during the course of his four-decade career, exploiting his facility with accents to play a wide variety of ethnic types.
