Subject:  Robert Newton

Size:  2.5x3.5

Description:  Exceptionally scarce inscribed and signed snapshot photo circa 1949.  The great British character actor specialized in pirate roles, with his definitive performance as Long John Silver in the 1950 Walt Disney adventure, Treasure Island.  Often cast as diabolical characters, Newton was superb in This Happy Breed (1944), Odd Man Out (1947), Oliver Twist (1948; as Bill Sykes), The Hidden Room (1949), Blackbeard the Pirate (1952), and other fine films.  The hard-living actor succumbed to a heart attack at the young age of fifty in 1956.  (Vintage original photograph; true vintage autograph)

Condition:  Very Fine with trivial wear; slight smudging to the last letters of his surname
