Uncommon vintage 1930s 4×6 glossy glossy black and white chest-up portrait, signed in black fountain pen. Fine condition, with a surface impression in the background atthe let edge and portions of his signature penned against the dark fabric of his tie. French character actor Michel Simon was frequently cast as scruffy, bad-mannered lower-class types, appearing in such classic films as Boudo Saved From Drowning (1932), L’Atalante (1934) and Le Quai des Brumes (1938), as well as his late-career triumph, The Two of Us (1967).
