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 His television credits include several TV series, including the top-billed Not For Publication (1951-1952), and guest appearances on a long list of shows, from early anthology series in 1951 to Alias Smith and Jones (1971). WOODS (1906-1998, born Ralph Zink in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada) was an American stage and film actor with over 120 films and TV shows to his credit between 1928, with an uncredited appearance in Motorboat Mamas(1976). Most of his films were B-movies, such as Charlie Chan on Broadway (1937) and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms (1953). But there were exceptions, including The Story of Louis Pasteur(1936), Watch on the Rhine (1943) and The Bridge of San Luis Rey and third billing in Anthony Adverse (1936). His TV appearances include the titular role in Craig Kennedy, Criminologist (1952). Lightly toned. "rome" in Cowan's signature is smudged. Pinholes on one side from album binding.
