Inscribed photograph signed: "Good luck/to Francis/Charles Cane", in blue ink, B/w 3½x5¾. Charles Cane (1899-1973) was an actor appearing in 142 films and television series, mostly in bits roles or supporting characters. His first major film role was in 1941's All Through the Night, and would ultimately be one of his bigger roles, as many of Cane's roles were uncredited. However, that is not to say that his roles were always unnoticed, as he has more prominent roles in movies such as My Favorite Blonde (1942), Casanova Brown (1944), and Dead Reckoning (1947). After his role as a teamster trucker in My Favorite Blonde, Cane was often cast in trucker roles, and also made many appearances as cops or detectives. 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. Corners lightly worn. Fine condition.
