Lot 884: American actor and comedian (1883-1939) best known for his work with Keystone Studios and as one of the 'Big 4' Keystone Cops. Rare vintage matte-finish 8 x 10 Witzel of L.A. full-length photo of Ford as the chief of the bumbling Keystone Cops, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Toppy:-when do we go to Long Beach, Yours, Ford Sterling." In very good condition, with slight creasing and soiling, wear to edges, a few specks to his suit filled in with black ink, and some reduced ink flow to portions of the signature. A stunningly clear shot of Sterling in full, over-the-top character-and the first item we have offered of the prolific comedian.
