Distinguished looking photo in pinstripe suit, inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/Walter Abel". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature: October 16, 1936. Walter Abel (1898-1987) 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 men, 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); the hapless agent of Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire in Holiday Inn (1942); and a philanthropist who falls off a skyscraper to his death, in Mirage (1966). Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners worn and creased. Lightly toned around edges. Diagonal crease from left center edge to center lower edge. Otherwise, Fine condition.
