Sale Price $342.00
Vintage candid 3½x5½ photo of the actor on a city sidewalk, from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane. Very Rare!
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Violet/Bob Williams". B/w, 3½x5½. Candid photo. Supporting actor Robert "Bob" Williams (1904-1978) played bit parts in movies from 1936, but only began to get named roles during World War II, including a destroyer skipper in U-Boat Prisoner (1944). He really came into his own in the television era, beginning with guest spots on Hopalong Cassidy, I Love Lucy and The Adventures of Superman in 1952. His last appearance was as "Garth Gimble, Sr." on an episode of Fernwood Tonight (1977). This photograph is from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane, Hawaii natives who moved to California in the 1920's. Francis Zane had a job at the historic Curran Theater and the San Francisco Opera House, which is where he began his massive collection, with photographs and materials ranging from the 1920's to 1960's. The location and luck of his occupation would land him smack dab in the middle of the celebrity world, allowing him to capture some of the most unique and interesting pieces of Hollywood History. Lightly bowed. Lightly tone. Otherwise, fine condition.
