ROBERT EDESON AUTOGRAPH


Robert Edeson was born June 3, 1868 in New Orleans, Louisiana – died March 24, 1931 in Hollywood, California.  Robert was an American movie and stage actor of the silent era. Edeson got his first boost in movies when he co-starred with Cecil B. DeMille in the 1914 film, The Call of the North. He replaced actor Rudolph Christians in Erich von Stroheim’s production of Foolish Wives (1922), after Christians dropped dead. Edeson famously only showed his back to the camera so as not to clash with shot footage of Christians that was still to be used in the completed film. He also starred in several Broadway productions as well. Original Robert Edeson Autograph, signed on Cut Paper mounted on Card Stock. Approx. Size of Card Stock 2 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches.
