Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Francis/Best to you/always/Donald Buka," in blue ink. B/w, 3x5, 3½x5½ overall (one surface). Candid photo. Donald Buka (1920-2009) was an American stage and film actor, most popular in the 1940's and 1950's. He has appeared in 10 Broadway plays in various roles and positions, starting with a role in Twelfth Night (1940). He continued performing on stage until his final role in 1984 in Design in Living, though he still had a long list of film credits to add to his career. He had 50 plus film and television credits, in movies/shows such as Watch on the Rhine (1943), How To Marry a Millionaire (1958), and All My Children (1987). 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. Fine condition.
