    Offered in this lot are vintage gelatin silver, single weight, glossy finish portrait photos of actors William Powell and Pat O'Brien (RKO, 1944). Included are four photos of William Powell, three studio portraits and one from The Key (Warner Bros., 1934), as well as one studio portrait photo of Pat O'Brien. Unrestored photos that display signs of use. May include slight edge wear, light creases, faint surface blemishes and scuffs, unobtrusive stains, or small tears. One of the photos of William Powell has been trimmed at the edges and has graphite writing on the verso causing surface indentations. The photo from The Key has a studio ink stamp mark on the verso, and it is signed "Powell" on the verso. The Pat O'Brien photo is signed "Hi Andy Get The Barefoot Boy With Cheeks of Tan. Gratefully Pat O'Brien." Heritage Auctions believes that the autographed item in this lot is authentic, but know before bidding that no Certificate of Authenticity is provided.
