Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/from/Burgess Meredith". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature June 4, 1936. Burgess Meredith (1907-1997), who made his stage debut in 1929 and his film debut in 1936 (Winterset, reprising his stage role), was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor for The Day of the Locust (1975) and Rocky (1976). Meredith appeared in feature films as both a character and lead actor, and his credits include Of Mice and Men (1939), Advise and Consent (1962), In Harm's Way (1965), Hurry Sundown (1967), Foul Play (1978), Grumpy Old Men (1993) and its sequel, Grumpier Old Men (1995). He was also a frequent guest TV performer, appearing in a number of made-for-television movies and on Playhouse 90 (1957), The Twilight Zone (1959, 1961, 1963), Bonanza (1967), The Monkees (1968) and Batman, in one of his most memorable roles, "The Penguin" (series and film, 1966). 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. Vertical creases to lower portion of image. Scattered minor stains and light surface wear. Otherwise, fine condition.
