Cat. #0030020412: MICHAEL REDGRAVE

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Uncommonly early 3.25 x 5.5-inch sepia-tone English postcard portrait, boldly signed in black fountain pen with his name alone in the late 1930s or early 1940s. In good condition. Dashing English leading man Michael Redgrave was mesmerizing in classic films like The Lady Vanishes (1938)The Stars Fell Down (1940), Mourning Becomes Electra (1947), The Browning Version (1951), The Importance of Being Earnest (1952), The Dam Busters (1955), 1984 (1956), The Quiet American (1958), and The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (1962).  For horror, sci-fi and fantasy buffs, he will forever be the tormented ventriloquist Maxwell Frere in Dead of Night (1945), and he is further remembered by fans of those genres for The Innocents (1961), Goodbye Gemini (1970) and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1973).
