DARK COMMAND MOVIE CAST - INSCRIBED PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED CO-SIGNED BY: WALTER PIDGEON, CLAIRE TREVOR, ROY ROGERS, JOHN "DUKE" WAYNE:

John Wayne, Roy Rogers, Walter Pidgeon and Claire Trevor sign a still from the only film in which Wayne and Rogers appeared together

Photograph signed: "John Wayne", "Walter Pidgeon" and inscribed "To Harold/Roy Rogers" and "To Harold/Best wishes/Claire Trevor". All four stars are shown in a still from the 1940 film. To capitalize on the stardom John Wayne had gained from Stagecoach (1939), Republic Pictures set out to film an A movie, and succeeded admirably. In a film which dramatized a Kansas territory beset by Quantrill's raiders before and during the Civil War, all four stars - Rogers included - deliver nuanced, convincing performances. All-American action hero JOHN "DUKE" WAYNE (1907-1979) appeared in over 250 films, primarily in war movies and Westerns. Although he had appeared in 80 low-budget films, Wayne did not become a star until 1939, when he appeared as the Ringo Kid in John Ford's Stagecoach. Read More...

EDWARD JENNER - THIRD PERSON AUTOGRAPH LETTER

EDWARD JENNER - THIRD PERSON AUTOGRAPH LETTER:

The inventor of smallpox vaccination apologizes for a late visit to an ailing child.

Third Person Autograph Letter: "Dr. Jenner," 1p, 4¼x6¾. Bedford Mall, Monday Morning, no date. The English surgeon writes, in full: "Dr. Jenner presents his Compliments to Mrs Sr Barbe, and begs leave to say, as she must have thought him tardy in his visit to her Infant yesterday, that he heard nothing of her Message till after his return from Queen's Square." Edward Jenner (1749-1823) observed that dairymaids who had contracted cowpox, a relatively benign malady, were immune to later infection by smallpox. Dr. Jenner vaccinated James Phipps, a boy of eight, with matter from cowpox vesicles on the hands of a milkmaid in 1796. Several weeks later, the boy was inoculated with smallpox but did not contract the disease. Dr. Jenner published his findings in Inquiry into the Cause and Effects of the Variolae Vaccinae in 1798. In 1979, the World Health Organization announced the eradication of smallpox (except for a few laboratory samples). Jenner's method was fundamental in the fight against smallpox, and is the cornerstone of modern immunology. Read More...
