WAYNE MORRIS

Vintage 11×14 matte finish black and white chest-up studio portrait, circa 1940, boldly signed and inscribed in blue fountain pen, “To Joe/With best wishes/Wayne Morris.”  Fine condition, with very mild waviness along the top edge and tiny bends to the right corner tips, not affecting the image.  The handsome leading man is best remembered for his performance in Kid Galahad (1937). During World War II he became a highly decorated flying ace and returned to a considerably diminished film career following his retirement from the armed services. This is the only signed oversize image I have ever encountered.
