Sale Price $270.00
The actor is shown wearing a light suit and patterned tie in this vintage 3½x6 candid photograph from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane. Extremely rare.
Inscribed photograph signed: "To Violet/All best wishes/Bob Shackleton", in blue ink, B/w 3½x6. Robert Shackleton (d. 1956) was an actor of stage and film, appearing in several films/television shows and plays in the 1940's and 1950's. He first began his career in the 1939 play Very Warm for May, and would appear in three more plays afterwards, transitioning to screen after 1951. His roles were mostly minor, having bit roles in the shows Kraft Theatre, Armstrong Circle Theatre, and Robert Montgomery Presents. 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. Corners lightly worn and creased. Lightly bowed. Pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Slightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
