RARE UNINSCRIBED WIZARD OF OZ: BERT LAHR SIGNED PHOTO AS "THE COWARDLY LION"

American comic actor. Fittingly born a Leo in New York City, he is best remembered today for his role as the Cowardly Lion (and the farmworker Zeke) in the classic 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, but known during his life for a career in burlesque, vaudeville, and Broadway. He later remarked, ‘After ‘The Wizard of Oz’ I was typecast as a lion, and there aren’t all that many parts for lions.’ Very rare and highly sought after uninscribed vintage glossy, slightly trimmed to an overall 7.75 x 10 half-length photo of Lahr as The Cowardly Lion, signed in blue ballpoint, “Sincerely, Bert Lahr.” Most of the known examples of Lahr as the Lion were signed in the 1960s and discovered in his desk after his passing. An iconic, and virtually nonexistent, Oz item.
