Autograph note on original art signed: "To Arvid Strauss--/with my admiration and/regard--/Herbert Marshall/Romanoff's in Hollywood/July 1949". 5½x7. HerbertMarshall (1890-1966) was a British actor who got his start on the stage in 1911 and became a star in 1913's Brewster's Millions. Shortly after this, he was shipped off to fight in World War I and had his leg amputated after being wounded. But the loss of a leg didn't slow down his career a bit; he just got fitted for a prosthesis and continued acting. Marshall had a total of 6 Broadway plays between 1922 and 1932 and a total of 90 movies and TV shows between 1927 and 1965, first as a romantic lead and later in character roles. He's probably best known as Geoffrey Wolfe in The Moon and Sixpence (1943) and author W. Somerset Maugham in The Razor's Edge (1946), both films based on Maugham's works. Arvid Strauss (b.1912) is a Latvian artist and sculptor, most active in the mid-20th century. His most famous piece, Christ of the Loop (made with Chicago artist J. Watts) sits in a Gothic arch at the downtown Catholic St. Peter's Church in Chicago. Toned. Notebook binding remnants at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
