Annotated photograph signed "With best Wishes/Ben Lyon" in blue ink. B/w, 8x9¾ overall, 7¼x8¾ image, one surface. Lyon (1901-1979, born in Atlanta, Georgia) was an American actor who starred in films of the silent and early talking era. In Howard Hughes' Hell's Angels (1930), he piloted his own plane. He married Bebe Daniels in 1930. Both moved to England in 1935 and became popular radio and television personalities there. Lyon fought in the Royal Air Force during World War II. After Bebe's death, he married former movie co-star Marian Nixon. In 1946, while working for 20th Century Fox, he organized a color screen test for a young actress named Norma Jean Dougherty, got Dougherty her first contract and suggested a name change to "Marilyn Monroe". Lightly toned and creased. Lightly scratched and spotted (not visible head on). "With best" and "Ben Lyon" are faint but legible. Otherwise in fine condition.
