Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely scarce vintage blue felt-tip pen signature on a 3x5-inch tan card, probably dating to the early 1970s.  In good condition.  After decades in the classical theater and supporting roles in British films like Nineteen Eighty-Four (1954), Three Cases of Murder (1955), The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), and Ben-Hur (1959),versatile, cerebral character actor Andre Morell found new fame in horror, sci-fi and mystery flicks of the 1950s and 1960s, especially at Hammer Studios.  He was unforgettable as Professor Bernard Quartermass on T.V.'s "Quartermass and the Pit" (1955-1959) and Dr. Watson in The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959), as well as in The Giant Behemoth (1959); The Shadow of the Cat (1961); She (1965); The Plague of Zombies (1966); The Mummy's Shroud (1967); "Dr. Who" (1966); and The Vengeance of She (1968).  Not long before his death in 1978, he had a small role as Lord Gustavus Adolphus Wendover in Stanley Kubrick's historical epic Barry Lyndon (1978).
