His very rare signature on an album leaf, acquired in 1933
Signature: "Thomas Meighan", 4x6 album leaf. Ink note (unknown hand) at left edge dates signature May 23, 1933. Thomas Meighan (1879-1936), a major film star of the silent era, made his Broadway debut in 1900, and had his biggest starring role there in The College Widow (1907-1908). Moving to Hollywood, he appeared in films from 1914. He co-starred with Norma Talmadge in a film promoting Liberty Loans (1918), appeared opposite Gloria Swanson in Cecil B. DeMille's Male and Female (1919), and with Bebe Daniels in Why Change Your Wife (1920). Other popular starring vehicles of the 1920s included The Alaskan (1924) and The City Gone Wild (1927). He made a few talking films, the last being Peck's Bad Boy (1934). Meighan was happily married from 1908 to stage actress Frances Ring, sister of film actress Blanch Ring, prompting one Hollywood columnist to quip that Thomas Meighan and Rin Tin Tin were the only movie stars who had never seen a divorce court. Shortly after signing this album leaf, Meighan was diagnosed with cancer; he died in 1936. Binding holes at left edges. Lightly toned around edges. Vertical creased through center. Otherwise, fine condition.
