Photograph signed: "Sincerely/Jerome Cowan", in black ink, B/w 3½x5¾. Jerome Cowan (1897-1972, born in New York City) was an American character actor of stage and film who mostly played debonair, sophisticated types. Cowan, who made his Broadway debut in 1923's We've Got to Have Money, would appear on the Great White Way in 15 plays, including Boy Meets Girl, a comedy that ran for 669 performances at the Cort Theatre in New York City from 1935 to 1937. His last stage performance was Say, Darling (1958-1959). He made his film debut in 1936 in Beloved Enemy and would continue to appear on the big screen until 1969 (Last Comic). His notable roles include Sam Spade's doomed partner Miles Archer in The Maltese Falcon (1941) and District Attorney Thomas Mara in Miracle on 34th Street (1947) and Dagwood's boss Mr. Radcliffe in several Blondie movies from 1946 to 1949. Cowan also appeared in such films as St. Louis Blues (1939), The Song of Bernadette (1943), The Fountainhead (1949), Young Man With a Horn (1950), Visit to a Small Planet (1960) and Pocketful of Miracles (1960). His television credits include several TV series, including the top-billed Not For Publication (1951-1952), and guest appearances on a long list of shows, from early anthology series in 1951 to Alias Smith and Jones (1971). 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. Decoratively cut. Crease on bottom left corner. Slightly soiled. Signature lightly faded. Corners lightly worn and creased. Slightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
