MAXIE ROSENBLOOM

Vintage 8×10 glossy sepia tone chest-up publicity portrait, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint ink, “My Best/Maxie Rosenbloom,” adding an inscription to Boby [sic] in another ink.  Fine condition, with scattered extremely mild diagonal bends in his forehead and the background at the top right, barely visible when the photograph is viewed head on; and the ballpoint sentiment and signature light but readable against the light background.  The boxing champ turned actor appeared in scores of films over a career that endured for 35 years, almost invariably playing thugs and henchmen, frequently to great comic effect. Signed photographs are rather uncommon.
