Photograph signed: "Gene Raymond", in blue ink, B/w 3½x5¾. Gene Raymond (1908-1998) first appeared on stage at age 5, and on Broadway at age 12. Some of his best screen assignments include the anguished death row inmate in If I Had a Million (1932), the renegade groundskeeper in Zoo in Budapest (1933), the guy who won Dolores Del Rio in Flying Down to Rio (1933), the stuffy "other man" in Hitchcock's Mr. and Mrs. Smith (1941) and a glad-handing politico in The Best Man (1964). In 1948, Raymond produced, directed, co-wrote and starred in Million Dollar Weekend. A B-17 bomber pilot over Germany in World War II, he remained in the active reserves until 1968, long enough to fly airlifts in Vietnam, retire as a Colonel and win many decorations, including the Legion of Merit. He was married to actress Jeanette MacDonald from 1937 until her death in 1965. 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. Corners and edges lightly worn. Fine condition.
