Basil Rathbone
"Small Stuff"

Some of these items are really not so unusual. There are companies that will "personalize" mousepads, pins, magnets, keyrings, mugs, coasters, T-shirts, etc. with any photograph you provide. Below are examples of such items, plus some more unusual items.

These are Christmas ornaments, but could also be used as keyrings. The one on the left is made from a "Son of Frankenstein" poster; the center one shows Rathbone and Tyrone Power ("The Mark of Zorro"); and the one on the right shows Rathbone and Errol Flynn ("Adventures of Robin Hood").
