    A James Cagney Group of Signed Black and White Photographs, Circa 1940s. Three total, all original prints with a matte finish, the first depicting the star in a classic headshot as he wears a suit and polkadot tie, signed in blue ballpoint ink in the lower left corner "Best o' luck / J Cagney;" the second depicting the star with a contemplative expression on his face, signed in black ballpoint ink in the left corner "Jim Cagney;" and the third same image as the first, signed in same ink and place "Good luck / J Cagney;" all autographed for fans but evidently 'returned to sender' then filed away by Nora Helm, Cagney's longtime secretary. (Please note there is slight wrinkling on the margins of all but main images are not affected.)
