    Description

    Arthur Hoyt and Jules Cowles. Two great character actors from 1925's The Lost World - Arthur Hoyt, who played "Prof. Summerlee," and Jules Cowles, who portrayed "Zambo," servant to Sir John Roxton (played by Lewis Stone). Hoyt, pictured in his deerstalker hat and with his magnifying glass, writes, "To Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Most sincerely Arthur Hoyt 1924." Cowles, who appears to be black or in blackface, writes, "To Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I hope this is 'Zambo' as you visualized him. Jules Cowles." Hoyt, one of Hollywood's most prolific character actors, played in over 270 films! 8x10 stills with borders make an 11x14 presentation, with photographer James N. Doolittle's name appearing in lower right margin. These are unusual souvenirs from Hollywood's first great dinosaur movie, in fascinating format.
