BUSTER CRABBE
In pinstripe suit, inscribed in person as Larry Crabbe to collector Saul Goodman
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To/Saul/Best Wishes from/Larry Crabbe". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink note on verso dates signature: March 29, 1938. Buster Crabbe (1908-1983, born Clarence Linden Crabbe in Oakland, California), who won the Gold Medal in the 400-meter swim at the 1932 Olympic games, went on to star in over 100 adventure films, many set in outer space (most as Flash Gordon), and the Wild West (as Billy "the Kid" Carson). In 1933, Crabbe also starred as Tarzan in the Principal Pictures 16-part serial film. Ironically, in winning his Olympic medal, Crabbe had broken the record set by MGM's rival Tarzan, Johnny Weissmuller. 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. Minor surface marks, with light creases at left edge. Overall, fine condition.
