NORMAN FOSTER. Vintage 1930x 7.5 x 9.5 matte finish silver tone head and shoulders portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, July 9, 1961/To John – with all the best -/Norman Foster.” Very fine condition. Norman Foster entered films at age 28, playing pouty, immature leading men in several dozen films until 1935. At that point, he switched to directing, overseeing numerous entries in the Mr. Moto and Charlie Chan series. In the 1950s he became increasingly active as a director on television, working freqently for Walt Disney as well as his sister-in-law, Loretta Young. Signed images are quite uncommon, this being the first one I have had in six years.
