Publicity photo for the film Let 'Em Have It, inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/Good Luck/Richard Arlen". B/w, 8x10. Publicity photo for Let 'Em Have It (1935), captioned in lower margin. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature: March 15, 1936. Richard Arlen (1900-1976), born Richard Cornelius van Mattimore, costarred with Buddy Rogers and Clara Bow in the World War I aerial adventure Wings (1927), the first-ever Academy Award-winning motion picture. (Though a US citizen, Arlen had been a pilot in the Royal Canadian Flying Corps in the war, but hadn't seen combat.) One of Paramount's most popular leading men in the 1920s and 1930s, Arlen continued to act through the 1970s. His film credits include The Virginian (1929), The Santa Fe Trail (1930), Helldorado (1935), Call of the Yukon (1938), That's My Baby (1944), Hurricane Smith (1952), The Snows of Kilimanjaro (1952), Johnny Reno (1966) and The Great Call of the Wild (1976, his last film). Arlen starred as a gang-busting G-man in Let 'Em Have It. 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. Scattered light creases and surface marks. Overall, fine condition.
