Canada Lee was a black African American boxer from 1926 to 1930, and an actor from the 1930s to the 1950s. He refused to take stereotyped black roles, and thus his movie career was very limited. Some of his movies include: Cry the Beloved Country, Lifeboat, and Lost Boundries. He passed away in 1952 at the age of 45 of a heart attack.

Important Added Info: Note that this item has been personally autographed (signed) by Canada Lee! Many collectors take individual signatures of famous stars and frame them together with an original or repro still of that star in their prime, and it makes for a wonderful display!

Note that this item was consigned to us by a man who was a major movie memorabilia dealer in the 1970s and 1980s. During that time, he was approached by an elderly man named Sterling H. Bond, who had collected autographs for many years (starting in the early 1930s), and who sold the dealer his entire collection. Bond had tracked down many important Hollywood celebrities and obtained autographed items (often personalized to him), and he also had autographs from celebrities who were not in the film business (including famous politicians!). The dealer was so impressed with this collection that rather than sell it item by item, he began collecting autographs himself, sending celebrities items by Registered Mail which they then autographed and returned to him! He also purchased a few autographed items from top autograph dealers of the 1970s and 1980s. Now, decades later, the dealer consigned these autographed items to us, and we have sold many of them in our previous "all signed" auctions, and this set of auctions contains the last of them. All of these autographed items from this consignor were either obtained by long time collector Sterling H. Bond, or were obtained by this memorabilia dealer, and we feel certain that the autograph on this item is authentic!

Condition: very good to fine.
