JOHN RAITT and GEORGE BRENT Original portrait of Brent, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both! Original Art signed: "George Brent", 5½x8½. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "JRaitt". Captioned at bottom margin (2 surfaces). George Brent (1899-1979) was an Irish actor who worked in American films and television for over fifty years. He began his career in Hollywood in 1930 and signed a contract with Warner Brothers. He soon became a Hollywood leading man and a frequent male co-star of Bette Davis. The two worked opposite each other in thirteen films including Front Page Woman (1935) and My Reputation (1936). Brent, a known womanizer had a relationship with Davis and was later married to three actresses, Ruth Chatterton, Constance Worth and Ann Sheridan. In the late 1940's Brent strayed into "B" pictures and in 1953 he retired from film, at which time he began appearing in television series. While in college in the 1930s, JOHN RAITT began drawing portraits of famous people. He sent his artwork to each subject with a request that it be autographed and returned to him. Two horizontal folds. Tape affixed at corners. Light surface damage at top right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
