JOHN RAITT and HERBERT MARSHALLOriginal portrait of Marshall, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both! Original Art signed: "Herbert Marshall", 5½x8¼. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "J Raitt". British actor HERBERT MARSHALL (1890-1966) made his stage debut in 1911 and became a star in 1913's Brewster's Millions. Then he lost his leg in combat in World War I. But the loss of a leg didn't destroy his career; 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. 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. 1-inch tear at bottom left (not affecting signature). Tape affixed at corners. Two horizontal folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
