WILLIAM H. CRANE The star of Buster Keaton's The Saphead (1980) signed and dated this white slip of paper "Very Truly Yours" in 1906 Signature: "Very Truly Yours/Wm. H. Crane/Aug. 31st 1906". 5½x2¾. William H. Crane (1845-1928, born in Leicester, Massachusetts) was a stage actor who made his debut during the American Civil War but lived long enough to appear, and even star, in silent-era movies. Crane debuted in Donizetti's Daughter of the Regiment (1963) in Utica, New York in 1863 and scored a big success a decade later as Le Blanc the Notary in the burlesque Evangeline (1873). He specialized in eccentric characters; out of his 27 Broadway appearances, three were in the title role of the comedy David Harum (1915), a role he created on the “Great White Way” Midtown Manhattan area of Broadway. Crane later reprised the role in the 1915 film adaptation of the play. It was the first of five film appearances for Crane, which including a starring role in the Buster Keaton comedy The Saphead (1920). Lightly toned and creased. Ink stains. Discoloration and residue from adhesive in upper right corner and on verso, with show-through that touches signature. Signature has been neatly torn from a larger sheet on top and left edges.
