    Description

    Clifton Webb Signed Guest Book Pages. A two-page lot of signatures from the guest book of Webb and his mother Mabel. Sheet one is perhaps most notable for the signature of Richard Barthelmess (1895-1963). "He had the most beautiful face of any man who ever went before the camera," said Lillian Gish, who joined Barthelmess acting for D.W.Griffith in Broken Blossoms (1919) and Way Down East (1940), which featured the classic scene of Barthelmess leaping across the racing ice floes to save the imperiled Gish. Primarily a star in Silents, Barthelmess still scored in films such as The Dawn Patrol (1930), and signed this page using his nickname, writing "Corey Barthelmess." His wife Jessica has signed it too, as have such celebrities as Beatrice Lillie and Richard Rodgers. The second page, dated Sept. 21 (no year) famed theatre director George Abbott, Broadway musical star Libby Holman and Millicent Hearst, wife of William Randolph Hearst. A fine assortment of vintage signatures. With COA from PSA/DNA.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
