The stage and screen actor signs a black and white 5x7 photograph "Merry Christmas"
Inscribed Photograph signed: "To/Maxene/Merry Christmas/Charles Coburn/1947", B/w 5x7. Broadway actor, producer and director Charles Coburn (1877-1961), born Charles Douville Coburn, did not appear in his first feature film (Of Human Hearts) until 1938, when he was 61. In 1940, he portrayed Dr. Henry Gordon, who unjustly amputated Drake McHugh's (Ronald Reagan) legs in Kings Row, resulting in the future President's greatest screen line (and title of his first autobiography): "Where's the rest of me?" Coburn was nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor (1941, The Devil and Miss Jones; 1943, The More the Merrier; 1946, The Green Years). He won in 1943 for his portrayal of elderly Benjamin Dingle, a likable business executive forced by the wartime housing shortage to share a Washington D.C. apartment with Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea. Lightly creased. Toned at edges. Pinhead size surface scratches. Pencil note (unknown hand). Otherwise, fine condition.
