    Ronald Reagan Publicity Photograph From His First Film Love is on the Air [1937] Inscribed "Sincere Best Wishes/ Norma, and "Good Luck" I'm/ Yours always/ Ronald Reagan". 8" x 10". A very young Ronald Reagan and his co-star June Travis are seated on a couch reviewing the script. In his own hand, Reagan has added a note on the verso of the photograph which reads "They changed the name to "Love in on the Air", it's the very first picture I ever made." The original typed paper caption label which was mounted to the verso has been removed leaving some remnants, some minor mounting remnant abrasions to the extreme top and bottom edges, and there are a few trivial creases at the corners, otherwise a rare offering in very good condition. Fantastic and historic inscribed publicity photo from Reagan's film debut with his own personal notation on the verso.
