TONIO SELWART
On his signed picture postcard, he quips about his year as a "matinee idol."
Postcard Photograph signed: "Tonio Selwart". B/w, 3½x5½. No stamp or postmark. Photo: Janet Jevons. On verso he has written an autograph note: "Photo of 1934 (!!!/when I was 'a matinee idol'(!)/in New York and London in/ 1933 + 1934 in 'Pursuit of Happi-/ness' (stage play)". Antonio Selwart (1896-2002), a Bavarian-born actor who went by Tonio in recognition of the Italian part of his ancestry, served in the Austrian army in World War I. A star of French and Italian films, who never appeared in a German one, he played supporting roles in English-language films, often as a German official or soldier. He played theater stages throughout Europe. As he notes on this card, he scored a big Broadway success as the star of The Pursuit of Happiness (1933-1934); he often quipped that he became a "matinee idol for a year." Signature smudged at "rt" of Selwart. Light corner creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
