Small piece of green paper signed "best wishes" and affixed to an index card
Autograph Note signed "To Ralph/best wishes/Walter Abel". With "Abel, Walter/Feb. 22 '39/'Off to Buffalo'" in blue ink in unknown hand on card and notations in blue ink on verso in unknown hand. 2½x1¾ signature affixed to 4¾x2¾ card. Abel (1898-1987, born in St. Paul, Minnesota) was an American actor with over 80 TV shows and films and over 40 Broadway appearances to his credit between 1918 and 1985. Abel made his name playing well-groomed but barely restrained professional man, mostly in top supporting roles, and his dignity lent well to his appearances in Eugene O'Neill's plays. Among his notable screen appearances were as D'Artagnan in The Three Musketeers (1935), the newspaper editor in Arise My Love (1940), as Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire's hapless agent in Holiday Inn (1942) and Charles Calvin, a philanthropist who falls off a skyscraper to his death, in Mirage (1966). Lightly toned. Signature has irregular edges and has a small stain in upper left corner, which touches signature. Card is lightly creased and bowed and has rounded edges. Otherwise in fine condition.
