Paramount studio photo, inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To/Saul/Best in the World/Kent Taylor". B/w, 8x10. Captioned in lower margin for Paramount Pictures. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature: April 12, 1938. Kent Taylor (1907-1987) was a leading man in B-movies of the 1930s and forties, including a notable turn as Doc Holiday in Tombstone: the Town Too Tough to Die (1942). He had the rugged good lucks of the top male stars, but apparently lacked the charisma or good fortune to reach the very top. He may bes best known for playing the title role in the TV series Boston Blackie (1951-1953). Taylor, who also appeared in the TV series The Rough Riders (1958-1959), guest starred on several TV series, from The Ford Television Theatre (1956) to several episodes of Zorro (1958) and Land of the Giants (1970). Near the end of his career, Taylor descended to low-grade horror movies like Brides of Blood and Hell's Bloody Devils. An in-law of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel, Taylor was half of the inspiration for the name of Superman's alter ego, Clark Kent (Clark came from Clark Gable). Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners worn and creased. Lightly toned around edges. Otherwise, Fine condition.
