Book Description: [circa 1917]. [circa 1917], 1917. Book Condition: Fine. INSCRIBED BY HAROLD LLOYD TO THE MYSTERY WRITER MARY ROBERTS RINEHART & SIGNED BY LLOYD - sc An original 13-1/2 inch high by 10-1/2 inch wide matte-finish gelatin silver photograph of the great Hollywood silent film comic actor. Depicted in three-quarter profile from the chest up against a soft matte-black background. Dressed in a dark suit and tie with round wire-framed glasses beneath neatly combed hair, Harold Lloyd looks toward the unseen camera, and consequently the viewer, with a gentle smile. Inscribed in silver white ink diagonally across the bottom left: "Mary Roberts Rinehart - / A great artist - / Sincerely / Harold Lloyd". The "R" and the "n" in "Rinehart" are faded. The edges of the borders were unevenly cropped to fit an old frame. A fine superb photograph with a strong inscription and autograph. Harold Lloyd (1893-1971) ranks alongside Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton as one of the great comedians of the silent screen era. His nearly 200 comedy films, made between 1914 and 1947 span both the silent era and that of the talkies. He is quoted as saying, in reference to his career and the persona he created: "There is more magic in a pair of horn-rimmed glasses than the opticians dream of, nor did I guess the half of it when I put them on in 1917."Considered as the American Agatha Christie, Mary Roberts Rinehart (1876-1958) was an influential mystery writer who is considered the "founder" of the "Had-I- But-Known" school and was considered the originator of the phrase "The butler did it", though she never did use that phrase. Bob Kanes cites her costumed criminal "The Bat" as the inspiration for "Batman". Bookseller Inventory # 29283
