Lot 1016: Studio executive (1881–1958) who was a founder of Warner Bros. and served as its president until 1956. Official FBI civil fingerprint card, signed "Harry M. Warner," one page both sides, 8 x 8, stamp-dated January 20, 1937, on the reverse. The front of the card bears Warner's fingerprints individually as well as prints of all fingers simultaneously. The reverse is filled out in pencil in another hand with his personal information, including height, weight, hair color, complexion, and build. In fine condition. An interesting piece of Hollywood history, as it coincides with the beginning of the FBI's investigation into Paramount and other studios for their landmark antitrust case.
