    Lewis Stone Autographed Picture fro The Lost World. Lewis Stone was one of Hollywood's most venerable character stars, best-remembered for his films with Garbo and (especially) his role as Judge Hardy in MGM's Andy Hardy series.Here he is as Sir John Roxton, one of the imperiled principals of The Lost World, the 1925 stop-motion dinosaur classic based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel. Stone, looking perfectly heroic in his hunting-for-big-game togs and pith helmet, has signed to Conan-Doyle (who appeared as himself in the film), "To Sir Arthur, respectfully Lewis J. Stone 1924." 8x10 picture with exotic background, set inside border to create an 11x14 presentation, with photographer James N.Doolittle's name on lower right margin. Hard to imagine "Judge Hardy" taking on prehistoric monsters, but as this dynamic shot proves, Stone acted it (and everything else) with aplomb and credibility. This is a marvelous piece from very early Hollywood Fantasy movie-making, an excellent format for one of the movie's major character players, and a most desirable connection to one of the world's renowned authors.

    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!
