Inscribed photograph signed: "To Francis/Good luck/Robert Coote", in black ink, B/w 3½x5¾. English stage and screen actor Robert Coote (1909-1982) was usually cast by Hollywood as an aristocrat or British military type. He played Sergeant Higgenbotham in Gunga Din (1939), and Aramis in The Three Musketeers (1948). He interrupted his film career to serve as a squadron leader in the Canadian Air Force in World War II. Coote originated the role of Colonel Pickering in the original Broadway production of My Fair Lady (1956). His last feature film appearance was as one of the critics murdered by Vincent Price in Theatre of Blood (1973). He had a recurring role in the TV detective series Nero Wolfe (1981). This photograph is from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane, Hawaii natives who moved to California in the 1920's. Francis Zane had a job at the historic Curran Theater and the San Francisco Opera House, which is where he began his massive collection, with photographs and materials ranging from the 1920's to 1960's. The location and luck of his occupation would land him smack dab in the middle of the celebrity world, allowing him to capture some of the most unique and interesting pieces of Hollywood History. Edges decoratively cut. Top right and bottom left corner creased. Lightly bowed. Corners lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
