Fine color, impression and condition. The actor's beige shirt has been burnished with a coarse piece of silk inserted between the barren and the paper leaving a textured surface simulating coarse silk, and has then tarnished over the years. Tiny wormhole upper left margin. These deluxe printing techniques indicate that the print is a first edition.
