    John Boles Photos Group. If his claims to have been an Allied spy in Europe and Turkey during World War I are to be believed, then actor John Boles had quite possibly a far more exciting real life than he'd ever have in "reel" life. Still, he starred in a number of successful films during the peak of his career in the '20s and '30s, most notably "Frankenstein" and "Stella Dallas." This lot features six vintage black-and-white 8" x 10" photos of the actor, two of which are autographed. Five of the photos (including one of the autographed ones) have binder holes along the left edge; otherwise all are in excellent condition with little to no wear. From the estate of Shelby Chapman. With COA from PSA/DNA.
