Inscribed photograph signed: "To Irene,/Best Wishes/Henry Armetta/Toronto, 1935", in black ink, 8x10¼. Henry Armetta (1888-1945) was an illegal-immigrant, 1902-style, stowing away on a boat from Italy. He found success in Hollywood as a character actor, often playing stereotypical, excitable Italians in comedies and not a few dramas, beginning in the silent era. Laurel and Hardy fans may remember his as the flustered innkeeper in The Devil's Brother (1933). His last film, A Bell for Adano, appeared after his death. Corners lightly worn and creased. Lightly toned. Light surface creases. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Slightly soiled on corners. Otherwise, fine condition.
