RODDY McDOWALL. Youthful vintage 8×10 matte finish silver tone chest-up studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in green fountain pen, “To Ida -/Always very sincerely -/Roddy McDowall/1949.” Fine condition, with very mild border creasing and a thin band of very faint silvering in the background along the edges, completely invisible when the photograph is viewed head on. Roddy McDowall was one of the relatively few group of child actors who successfully transitioned to adult roles, enjoying a busy six-decade career that included the stage, screen and TV.
