Actor (1894–1946) who had a brief, but memorable career in B-movies, best known for his unusual facial features caused by acromegaly. Very scarce ALS, one page, 7 x 10, August 20, 1945. Letter of congratulations to an unidentified recipient. In full: “All good wishes upon your winning the new Elks scholarship to the University of Tampa. As a former Tampan, I was just reading an old Tampa Tribune, hence, learned of your splendid record. I am sure you will continue this record in college under direction of my friend, Dr. Nance. Again, congratulations and all good wishes to you and yours.” Double-matted and framed with an eerie photo of Hatton and a name plaque to an overall size of 14 x 31.5. In fine condition. Only the third Hatton item we have ever offered, and the first handwritten letter, beautifully penned and boasting a spectacular signature which measures almost 4″ long. Oversized. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
