A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM PLAY CAST
Program signed on the cast page by Tony winners Zero Mostel and Brian Davies, and nominee Jack Gilford
Program signed: "Zero Mostel", "Jack/Gilford", "Brian Davies", 16 pages, 9x11¾. Program signed by three stars of the original production of this popular musical comedy (1962-1964). Zero Mostel played Pseudolus, the scheming slave of young Hero (played by Brian Davies). Jack Gilford was Hysterium, slave to Hero's prominent Roman parents. The production won six Tony Awards, including Mostel (Best Actor in a Musical) and Davies (Best Featured Actor in a Musical), with Davies beating out Gilford for the latter. Mostel and Gilford reprised their performances in the 1966 film. ZERO MOSTEL (1915-1977) won three Tony Awards for his Broadway appearances in Rhinoceros, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and Fiddler on the Roof. He followed Forum with one of the classic comedy performances of all time, producer Max Bialystock in Mel Brooks' The Producers. Mostel's final appearance was in the Academy Award-winning documentary Best Boy (1979). JACK GILFORD (1907-1990) was twice nominated for a Tony Award for his work in musicals: as Best Featured Actor for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum (1963) and as Best Actor for Cabaret (1967). He was nominated for a 1973 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Save the Tiger. (Jack Lemmon, shown here, won the Best Actor Oscar for the same film.) Gilford made several appearances on The Carol Burnett Show; he had first appeared with Burnett on Broadway in Once Upon a Mattress (1959). Gilford and Mostel were both blacklisted in Hollywood during the 1950s. BRIAN DAVIES (b.1938), who made his Broadway debut as the youthful Nazi boyfriend in The Sound of Music (1959), played supporting roles in a few feature films (The Bedford Incident, 1965; American Gigolo, 1980), and has made many TV guest spots, including several performances as Judge Busey on Law & Order (2000-2004). Lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
