Autographed Picture of director Harry O. Hoyt on The Lost World . Harry O. Hoyt, who began his directing career in 1915, had the daunting task of supervising the massive challenge of shooting The Lost World. In this 8x10 portrait, set into a large border to create an 11x14 effect, Hoyt writes, "To Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Humbly approaching a great work that we may have a picture novel that will live forever and a novel picture that will make you ? Harry O. Hoyt." Latter part of inscription is slighty faded. Hoyt left directing after 1933 and continued hs career as a writer, mainly scripts for "B" westerns and action potboilers. He died in 1961. Striking photo has the photographer's name, James B. Doolittle on the bottom right margin. Here's a fine piece on the largely forgotten "megaphoner" of this early special effects classic.
