B/w MGM publicity photo of conductor José Iturbi in a suit and tie and holding a pipe, signed and dated "with thanks" in 1965
Inscribed photograph signed "To Mrs./Bertie Bland/with thanks/José Iturbi/1965". Black ink notations on verso in unknown hand. Captioned in white in bottom left corner: "JOSE [sic] ITURBI - Metro Goldwyn Mayer". B/w, 8x10¼ overall, 7¼x9½ image, one surface. Born in Spain, Iturbi (1895-1980) came to the U. S. in 1929 and spent eight years as conductor of the Rochester Philharmonic. In the 1940s, he appeared in several MGM films - usually playing himself. Iturbi's biggest success came during his Hollywood years with his adaptation of Chopin's Polonaise in A Minor for the 1945 film A Song to Remember. Unfortunately, because of his Hollywood success, it caused many to undervalue him as a serious musician. Lightly toned, soiled, silvered, cracked, creased and bowed. Pen skipped in places while writing signatureTape residue at left and right edges (does not touch signature) and on verso (no show-through). Lightly scratches on image (not visible head-on). Light tears in bottom right corner. Rounded and worn corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
