FRANCIS L. SULLIVAN
A vintage 3½x5¾ candid photograph of the actor wearing a suit with a cigar in hand, acquired from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane. Extremely rare.
Photograph signed: "Francis L. Sullivan", in blue ink, B/w 3½x5¾. English character actor Francis L. Sullivan (1903-1956) had a rotund physique, striking double chin and deep voice which fit perfectly in villainous roles. Prominent movie roles included Nero in Fiddlers Three (1944), Mr. Bumble in Oliver Twist (1948) and an enemy spy in the Bob Hope comedy My Favorite Spy (1951). Sullivan, on stage since an appearance with the Old Vic Company at age 18, earned a Tony in 1955 in the Agatha Christie play Witness for the Prosecution. 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. Edges decoratively cut. Lightly bowed. Corners lightly worn and creased. Fine condition.
