RR Autograph Auction Rondo Hatton Signed Photo

RR Autograph Auction Rondo HattonActor (1894–1946) who had a brief, but memorable career in B-movies, best known for his unusual facial features caused by acromegaly. Practically unheard of vintage matte-finish head-and-shoulders photo, trimmed to a size of 7.5 x 9.5, signed and inscribed in fountain pen “To my friends—Chick, Della May & Nan, Every good wish—Rondo Hatton 1945.” In fine condition, with aforementioned trimming and a couple of minor spots to lower left corner. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from one of the photo’s recipients, stating, “This picture of Rondo Hatton is autographed to my father, mother, and myself in 1945…When my mother visited my aunt she got to meet Rondo once or twice…My father was a theater manager in the 1940s and this picture hung on the wall of his office.” Just the second Hatton item we have offered in over 30 years (the first being an album page), a signed Hatton photo is of the utmost rarity—this is the first we’ve ever encountered—an outstanding example boasting a clear image and a strikingly bold signature. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
