Cat. #0014441: CARY GRANT

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Scarce and terrific 10x8-inch black and white lobby still portrait from I Was A Male War Bride (1949), showing the star opposite leading lady Ann Sheridan, boldly signed and inscribed in black felt-tip ink pen in 1981. In good condition, with very mild border creasing. Iconic Cary Grant, suave, dashing English-born actor of the silver and Technicolor screens, was a bona fide star in every sense of the word, unforgettable in the Mae West vehicle She Done Him Wrong (1932); the Howard Hawks classics Bringing Up Baby (1938) and His Girl Friday (1940); The Philadelphia Story (1941); Alfred Hitchcock’s Suspicion (1941), Notorious (1946), To Catch a Thief (1955), and North by Northwest (1959); Frank Capra’s Arsenic and Old Lace (1941); the gender-bending I Was a Male War Bride (1949); An Affair to Remember (1957); House Boat (1958); and Charade (1963). He was nominated for two Academy Awards— one for the tearjerker Penny Serenade (1941) and the other for his favorite picture, None But the Lonely Heart (1944)— but lost out on both occasions. In 1970, the 66-year-old star was granted a special Oscar, citing his enormous critical and popular appeal, and his extraordinary contributions to cinema.
