An extraordinary autographed note from a young actor in 1939 who would become an icon in the Sci Fi /Horror Movie Genre. Vincent Price responds to an autograph request from a collector who would become sort of a celebrity himself as he became well now within the Hollywood community. In the late 19th century to early 20th century Howes Norris, Jr would build one of the largest most famous autograph collections in history. And many of the biggest movie stars would be humbled to be part of his collection as you can see in Mr Price’s response to Mr Norris.
The note reads: "To Howes Norris, Jr. It is a great privilege to be among your autographs- I hope I may always justify my place here Sincerely Vincent Price"
* We also acquired an equally extraordinary response and autograph from Bela Lugosi from the Howes Norris, Jr Collection. See it HERE..

Vincent Price (1911-1993) was an American actor, best know for his roles in horror films. His career spanned from 1935-1993, and he appeared in over 100 movies.
Howes Norris Jr. (1867-1938), of Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, was an avid collector of autographs from an early age. An article in the St. Petersburg Times (April 17, 1946, pg. 26) named him the "Granddaddy of all the autograph fiends." Norris even had a specific letterhead, "The Autograph Collection of Howes Norris Jr.," that he used to solicit signatures. Some of his themed autograph albums now reside in major institutions.
