STUART ERWIN (2)

Vintage 7.3 x 9.2 comic black and white two-thirds length Paramount Pictures studio portrait by Eugene Robert Richee, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To Sir James Starr/With no reservations/Hello -/Stuart Erwin.”  The photograph is inscribed in Hollywood columnist Jimmy Starr. Fine condition, with trimmed borders; a very mild bend in the background at the bottom right corner; faint surface impressions along the top edge, the result of handwriting on the reverse side; and portions of the writing penned against darker areas of the image, best readable by angling the photograph slightly into the light.
