Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00204012: MICHAEL POWELL

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Extremely uncommon vintage black felt-tip pen signature on a 4x6-inch yellow card, acquired in-person by inveterate autograph houng John Virzi in 1981. In very good condition and suitable for matting with a favorite photograph. One of cinema's most elusive director signatures! Just the fifth example we have encountered in over 30 years, Brilliant British director and screenwriter Michael Powell is remembered for classics like 49th Parallel (1941), The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943), A Matter of Life and Death (1946), Black Narcissus (1947), The Red Shoes (1948), and The Tales of Hoffman (1951). In 1960, his career was irreparably damaged when he released the genuinely disturbing, sexually-charged Peeping Tom, in which Karlheinz Bohm portrayed a sexual sadist who brutally murders prostitutes and other women while filming their deaths.
