Small 5x7 sepia-toned photo of Oscar-winning character actor Charles Coburn in a dark pinstriped suit, hat and monocle, signed "Merry Xmas" in white ink
Inscribed photograph signed "To Vivian/Merry Xmas/Charles Coburn" in white ink. B/w sepia-toned, 5x7 overall, 4¼x6¼ image, one surface, printed on fabric-textured cardstock. Broadway actor, producer and director 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 toned, creased and bowed. Signature has low contrast in places but is legible. Rounded and worn corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
