Description

    Wallace Beery Photos. "He pinched my bottom once because he thought I was stealing a scene," lamented former child star Margaret O'Brien about working with Wallace Beery. "And once he even stole my lunch!" He might have been uncouth off the screen, but Beery was a major Hollywood attraction, an Academy Award winner for The Champ (1931) and one of MGM's most durable stars. This lot pays him respect with a terrific 11" x 14" portrait from The Mighty Barnum (1934), with snipe and the stamp of photographer Kenneth Alexander on the verso; a paper 8" x 10" portrait with dog and a facsimile signature; a 10" x 13" shot of Beery in a jeep with the 757th Tank Battalion on location for The Bugle Sounds (1942), with snipe; a 9.5" x 12.5" still with Marjorie Rambeau in Twenty Mule Team (1940), with photographer Clarence Bull's stamp and typed caption en verso; and a 9" x 11" portrait of Wally in Naval officer's uniform from Thunder Afloat (1939) with Bull's stamp and typed caption en verso. All but the second are originals, and all are in Very Fine to Excellent condition.

    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!
