"Big smile!"—Ledger as the Joker

Rare color satin-finish 10 x 8 photo of Heath Ledger in his Oscar-winning role as the Joker in the 2008 film The Dark Knight, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, "To Daniel, Big smile! Heath.” Notation on reverse dates the signature to October 2007. In fine condition.

Ledger succumbed to accidental intoxication from prescription drugs on January 22, 2008, a few months after he had finished filming his performance as the Joker in The Dark Knight. The film was in its editing phase at the time of Ledger's death, and was released in the United States on July 18, 2008. Photos signed by Ledger as the Joker are incredibly rare and highly sought-after by cinephiles and comic book enthusiasts alike.
