Vintage 1958 8×10 glossy black and white chest-up United Artists studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To Richard -/Best Regards/Richard Basehart.”  Very good condition, with notations in another hand in the bottom border; mild creasing to three corner tips; and a soft but lengthy handling bend running from the top of the photograph at the far right down to the top of his left shoulder.  Most of the bend is kind of buried in the dark background and  essentially invisible when the photograph is viewed head on, but noticeable when the photograph is angled into the light.  Scarce.
