Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00567132: CLIFTON WEBB

Bold vintage inscribed blue ballpoint pen signature on a 4x6-inch off-white card, acquired in-person by an inveterate collector in 1965 and decorated with a small magazine image. In very good condition and suitable for matting with a favorite photograph. Unforgettable stage and screen star Clifton Webb played fussy, venom-spewing intellectuals who made an art form out of making everyone else look rather stupid. He was nominated for three Academy Awards, for his portrayals of obsessed murderer Waldo Lydecker in Laura (1944), Elliott Templeton in The Razor's Edge (1946) and fastidious Lynn Belvedere in Sitting Pretty (1948). He would would reprise the latter role in several more Mr. Belvedere comedies, before returning to dramas with Stars and Stripes Forever (1952), Titanic (1953), Three Coins in the Fountain (1954), The Man Who Never Was (1956), and Satan Never Sleeps (1962).
