    Bull Montana Autographed Photo from The Lost World. Terrific menacing shot of Bull Montana, who played "Ape-Man" in 1925's The Lost World, based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel. Montana, a professional wrestler who was personally managed by Douglas Fairbanks, often displayed his strength and roughhouse look in films of the 1920 and 1930s (e.g., he was a "Monkey-Man" in the 1936 Flash Gordon serial). He has signed on the mount, "To Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Best Wishes from Bull Montana 1924." 8X10 still of Montana, set within large borders to create the 11x14 effect, has photographer James N. Doolittle's name on the lower right margin. It's a grimly powerful display, and Montana looks ready to pounce. Grrr! Striking piece of a unique actor from a classic silent film with a Conan Doyle connection.
