JOHN DAVIS LODGE
Shown resting his arm on a collection of law texts, inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/Sincerely/John Lodge". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature: Jul 20, 1935 John Davis Lodge (1903-1985), the brother of 1960 Republican Vice Presidential candidate Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., served Connecticut in the US House of Representatives (1947-1951) and as Governor (1951-1955). A lawyer by profession, Lodge had pursued not only politics, but acting, appearing in a dozen films in the 1930s, including Little Women and The Scarlet Empress. A US naval officer serving as liaison to the Free French fleet during World War II, Lodge finished his career as ambassador to Argentina, Spain and Switzerland. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Lower left corner creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
