Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Arlene/Cordially/Alexander Kirkland," in black ink. Sepia, 8x10. Alexander Kirkland (1901 - death date unknown) had 11 prominent film roles between 1931 and 1934, including Almost Married (1932), for which he also wrote the screenplay. He was seen in A Face in the Crowd (1957), and in a few TV appearances. He wrote several short stories published in national magazines. Kirkland was married to famed striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee from 1942 to 1944, although the couple separated after three months. After Gypsy's death in 1970, director Otto Preminger acknowledged paternity of Erik Lee Kirkland, the only child by this marriage. Although Forman Brown stated that Kirkland was the model for a leading character in his early gay novel, Better Angel (1933), Kirkland was married two more times. He owned an art gallery in Palm Beach, Florida, and then retired to an estate in Cuernavaca, Mexico, where he was last heard from in the late 1980s. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Very fine condition.
