Vintage 1939 7.7 x 9.7 glossy black and white Paramount Pictures chest-up publicity portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “G. Frederick/Sincerely/from/Lynn/Overman.” Fine condition, with very slightly trimmed borders and a mild diagonal handling bend at the bottom right corner, barely visible when the photograph is viewed head on. The prolific character actor appeared in 50 films between 1930 and his death in 1943, usually playing a wisecracking sidekick to the leading man.
