Original 10 inch x 8 inch Black and White Still of A.E. MATTHEWS in the 1951 Henry Cornelius Comedy THE GALLOPING MAJOR, based on a story by Basil Radford.

Alfred Edward Matthews OBE (1869 – 1960), known as A. E. Matthews, was an English actor who played numerous character roles on the stage and in film for eight decades. Already middle-aged when films began production, he enjoyed increasing renown from World War II onwards as one of the British cinema’s most famous crotchety, and sometimes rascally, old men.

Photo by Harold Hanscomb with his stamp on the reverse.

The still is in very good condition with a small crease in the top left corner and a synopsis taped to the reverse.
