MARIAN NIXON (1904-1983), born Maria Nissinen and sometimes billed as Marion Nixon, made her film debut in 1923 (Rosita), and she would go on to appear in over 70 films through 1936 (Tango, The Drag-Net and Captain Calamity). In 1935, Nixon was seen on the big screen in Sweepstakes Annie. Her other credits include Cupid's Fireman (1923), Charlie Chan's Chance (1932) and Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm (1932). A. M. "Doc" Salomon, a friend of studio mogul Jack Warner, worked in several departments at Warner Bros. before becoming studio manager. Then he was dispatched to run the London office. Salomon compiled an extensive collection of celebrity autographs during his nearly 30 years with Warner Bros. A V-1 rocket demolished his London studio in July 1944 and killed Salomon, but his photo collection miraculously survived. Heavy mounting residue on verso. Surface creases. Adhesive residue on front. Unknown stain at bottom left corner. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
