Lot 848: Actor whose career spanned the silent and sound eras (1880–1956) whose often uncredited roles included the captain of the Winkie Guards in The Wizard of Oz; he is best known for uttering the memorable line 'Hail to Dorothy! The Wicked Witch is dead!' Striking matte-finish 7 x 8.5 portrait of Lewis, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To William Mitchell, Sincerely, Mitchell Lewis." A crease to the upper left corner, a couple tiny filled in spots of surface loss to the lower portion of the image, and trimmed edges, otherwise fine condition; overall a highly appealing example. An extremely scarce autograph, this is the first we have offered in any format.
