Sale Price $467.50
Distinguished image in three piece suit, inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/R. Novarro". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink note on verso dates signature: October 30, 1968. Mexican-born actor Ramon Novarro (1899-1968), a big star of silent films in the 1920s, was billed as "the Latin Lover" for his role in The Prisoner of Zenda (1922). Also billed as "the next Valentino", Novarro played the title role in Ben Hur (1925) and starred in such films as The Student Prince (1927) before making a successful transition to "talkies" in Mata Hari (1931) with Greta Garbo. Novarro also directed some of his films and occasionally appeared in bits and cameos as late as 1960 (Heller in Pink Tights, a Louis L'Amour Western) before his brutal murder in 1968 (tortured by two hustlers who mistakenly believed he had a stash of money in his home). 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. Minor surface marks and creases. Fine condition.
