Cat. #001444: CARY GRANT

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Bold signature in heavy pencil on a portion of a pale blue autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s, and handsomely matted and framed up with a black and white portrait and a gold-colored nameplate. In good condition, with minor damage to the frame in two spots, at the top and bottom edges. Offered for signature value only! 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.
