VITTORIO GASSMAN. Vintage 1950s 8×10 glossy black and white head and shoulders portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “Vittorio Gassman/cordialmente a/Eliane.” Fine condition, with mild creasing in the top border, very slightly intruding into the background at the left; and areas of light emulsification in the background along the top edge, not substantially detracting from the overall appearance of the image. Vittorio Gassman’s Hollywood career was episodic and not especially distinguished, but in his native Italy he endured as one of the country’s most distinguished film and stage actors in a career that spanned over five decades.
