RR Auction D. W. Griffith Signed Portrait

RR Auction  D. W. GriffithTrailblazing filmmaker (1875–1948) who directed a number of important early classics, including Intolerance and the iconic Birth of a Nation. His innovative use of the fledgling medium resulted in a repertoire and vocabulary of film technique that remains influential to this day. Exceptional vintage matte-finish 8 x 10 half-length portrait of Griffith looking dapper, signed and inscribed in black ink, “Sincere greetings to Capt. J. C. Boylan, D. W. Griffith.” Trivial edge toning, two unobtrusive pinholes and a couple chips to upper edge, and moderate contrast to portions of inscription and signature, otherwise fine condition. A rarely seen format and terrific pose. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
