JOHN RAITT and VAN JOHNSON Original portrait of Johnson, drawn by John Raitt, signed by both! Original Art signed: "Kindest regards/Van Johnson", 5x8. Pencil drawing also signed by the artist "Raitt". Van Johnson (1916-2008, born Charles Van Johnson in Newport, Rhode Island) emerged as a film star during World War II, later making a good transition from leading man to character roles. His prominent films include Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1943), The Caine Mutiny (1954), Divorce, American Style (1967) and The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985). Johnson could also sing, permitting him to star in the film version of Brigadoon (1954) and on many stages as The Music Man. Often cast in war movies, as in Battleground (1949), he could also play romantic leads, as he did opposite such stars as Janet Leigh, Judy Garland, Esther Williams, June Allyson and Deborah Kerr. 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. Adhesive residue at corners. Lightly creased at top right corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
