Classic Entertainment Autographs

Cat. #00567132: CLIFTON WEBB

Flawless vintage black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch light green album page, acquired in-person by an inveterate New York City-based autograph hound in the 1930s. 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).
