Vintage 5×7 matte finish black and white chest-up studio portrait, circa 1950, boldly signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint ink, “Paula -/a low/and courtly/bow in/greeting/Robert/Mitchum.”  Fine condition, with mild waviness along a portion of the right border, slightly intruding into the background.  Surprisingly scarce in authentically signed vintage photographs, which were almost exclusively signed by his secretary.
