About this Item

This American leading man of crime noirs and Westerns starred in many films of the 1940s and '509s, including "This Gun for Hire" (1942), "The Blue Dahlia" (1946) and "Shane" (1953). Bold large signature in blue ink on a heavy stock 5" X 3" card, n.p., n.y. [ca. 1944]. Very good. Small tape stain at each edge, slightly touching upon the leftmost edge of the "A" in Alan. "Naval Aid Auxiliary" logo in gilt blue and red at top center, with red stripe along top edge and blue stripe along bottom edge. This organization raised funds for its war-time activities by enlisting many film stars to sign these decorative cards, which were then made available for purchase to the public. Accompanied by a superb glossy 8" X 9" black and white photograph, a half-length portrait of a brooding Ladd in suit and tie from the 1951 crime noir classic "Appointment with Danger." A striking pair. Bookseller Inventory # 40762
