    Description

    Ronald Reagan and Others Autographed Screen Actors Guild Photo. A b&w 8" x 10" photo taken during a SAG meeting signed in ink by Reagan, Jane Wyman, Walter Pidgeon, Edward Arnold, and Gene Kelly (adding " '47?"). The photo was taken at the Ambassador East Hotel in Chicago, where a guild delegation attended an AFL convention in October 1946. Arnold was president of the Guild from 1940-42; Reagan served in the position from 1947-52, as well as a brief second term from 1959-60; Pidgeon presided over the organization from 1952-57. Arnold became involved in politics in the 1940s, and was mentioned as a possible Republican candidate for the Senate. After losing a closely contested election for LA County Supervisor, he stated that perhaps actors were not suited to run for political office. This is a rare image made unique by the presence of signatures from three Guild presidents. In Fine to Very Fine condition with wear and creasing to the edges and corners, none of which affects the signatures. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
