Classic Entertainment Autographs


Rare vintage borderless 8x10-inch glossy black and white still portrait from Mountbatten: The Last Viceroy (1986), boldly signed in black felt-tip pen in the 1980s. In very fine condition. Classically-trained, eccentric Scottish leading man Nicol Williamson was unforgettable in Hamlet (1969), The Reckoning (1970), The Jerusalem File (1972), Robin and Marian (1976), the Sherlock Holmes gem The Seven-Per-Cent Solution (1976), The Goodbye Girl (1977), The Cheap Detective (1978), The Human Factor (1979), Excalibur (1981), Venom (1981), Macbeth (1983), Return to Oz (1985), Stephen King's Apt Pupil (1987), Black Widow (1987), the horror sequel The Exorcist III (1990), Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (1996), and Spawn (1997). By the mid-1990s, however, Williamson became unemployable, due to his erratic, sometimes alcohol-fueled behavior, which included several assaults on fellow performers. He made his final film appearance at age 59, after which little was heard of him until his death.
