FRANCIS X. BUSHMAN
Sepia tone publicity photograph of "The handsomest man in the world" shown handsomely gazing towards the camera
Photograph signed: "Sincerely/Francis X. Bushman". Sepia tone, 6½x8½. Photograph by Harrington Studio, Joliet, Illinois (imprint at lower right above signature). A former sculptor's model, Francis Xavier Bushman (1883-1966) had a beautiful physique which, combined with his handsome looks, propelled him to stardom in pre-20s silent movies. Known as "the handsomest man in the world" and the first film actor to be called "King of the Movies", he starred in 115 silent films between 1911 and 1914, including his most famous role, Messala in Ben-Hur (1925). Bushman made more than a million dollars a year during the silent era, but lost his fortune in the Crash of 1929. After 1930, he appeared in feature films sporadically, but became a star of radio soap operas. Bushman, who later appeared in David and Bathsheba (1951), Sabrina (1954), The Story of Mankind (1957) and Twelve to the Moon (1960), made his last film, The Ghost in the Invisible Bikini, in 1966, the year of his death. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 13¾x21¾.
