Rod La Rocque promotional signed (printed) photo

Rod La Rocque (November 29, 1898 – October 15, 1969) played The Shadow in the 1937 Grand National Pictures production "The Shadow Strikes". This is a rare "fan photo", with a printed signature and dedication, which would be sent to fans who wrote to the studio, and is printed on heavy stock, not on flimsy paper, which happened very often. Assuming that in the photo La Rocque would be in his late twenties/early thirties and that he stopped appearing in films in 1941, we could place this between somewhere between 1927 and 1941.
