Photograph inscribed and signed twice: "To Rene Caulder/My best wishes/Ben Lyon". B/w 8x10. 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. This Was Paris (1941), released while Paris was under German occupation, features Lyon as an American journalist in Paris at the beginning of World War II. After Bebe's death, Lyons 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". Corners and margins toned, creased and worn. Most creases not visible head-on. Otherwise, fine condition.
