REGIS TOOMEY

REGIS TOOMEY. Sepia tone 7.2 x 10 chest-up book-weight portrait, with printed biography below, removed from the 1930 edition of “Stars of the Photoplay, ” boldly signed and inscribed in turquoise fountain pen, “To Jon/From/Regis Toomey/ 6/’61/1930.” A few very faint surface impressions; otherwise very fine condition. Regis Toomey made his first screen appearance in 1929 and his final appearance in 1987. Over those six decades, he appeared in nearly 200 films and had roles in over 60 television series, beginning as a leading man but rather quickly finding steadier employment in character roles. John Verzi collection.
