JOHN BOLES Signed 3½x5¾ vintage b/w photograph of the actor standing on the street in a suit and tie Inscribed Photograph signed: "To Francis/from/John Boles" in black ink, 3½x5¾. John Boles (1895-1969, born in Greenville, Texas), a stage actor and singer before making his film debut in 1924, appeared in a number of feature films for Fox and as a freelancer, including Rio Rita (1929), The Desert Song (1929), Frankenstein (1931), Bottoms Up (1934), and three Shirley Temple films. Before his acting career took off, Boles studied to become a physician and later served in the United States Army Intelligence Service during WWI for two years. 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. Corners creased. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
