Broadway actor and silent film matinee idolWarner Baxter (1889-1951) won the 1930 Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for playing the Cisco Kid in the 1928 film In Old Arizona. Baxter, who had broken into silents with a bit part in 1914, would go on to appear in nearly 100 films, including Miss Brewster's Millions (1926), The Great Gatsby (1926), Ramona (1928), The Arizona Kid (1930), Daddy Long Legs (1931), The Cisco Kid (1931), 42nd Street (1933), Dangerously Yours (1933), The Prisoner of Shark Island (1936), Kidnapped (1938), Return of the Cisco Kid (1939), Lady in the Dark (1944) and a series of Crime Doctor films (appearing as Dr. Robert Ordway from 1943 to 1949). 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. Light creases and surface marks. Otherwise, fine condition.
