Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Doc/With my very best/Richard Barthelmess". Sepia, 10x13½. Silent film star RichardBarthelmess (1895-1963) was cast by D. W. Griffith opposite Lillian Gish in Broken Blossoms (1919) and Way Down East (1920). He was nominated for the first Academy Award for Best Actorfor 1927-1928 for his performances in two films, The Noose and The Patent Leather Kid. He quit films to join the U.S. Naval Reserve in 1942, the year his last film, The Mayor of 44th St. was released, and never returned to Hollywood, living off his investments instead. A. M.

A V-1 rocket demolished his London studio in July 1944 and killed Salomon, but his photo collection miraculously survived. Light silvering. Minor ink lose at signature. Heavy mounting residue on verso. Corners lightly worn and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
