American actor ALFRED LUNT (1892-1977) performed in, directing and producing over 50 Broadway productions between 1903 and 1962, earning two Tonys near the end of his stage career: one in 1954 for Best Director in Ondine (1954, 157 performances) and one in 1955 Best Actor in a Play in Quadrille (1954-1955, 150 performances). Lunt married English actress LYNN FONTANNE (1892-1983) in 1922, and they both appeared together in 26 Broadway productions between 1923 and 1958. One of these shows was The Guardsman (1924-1925, 248 performances). Both were cast in the 1932 film adaptation of the play, roles that earned them nominations for Best Actor and Actress in a Leading Role. The Guardsman was one of only nine movies and TV shows that Lunt performed in; he earned an Emmy for Outstanding Individual Achievements in Entertainment - Actors and Performers for his last TV role, the Hallmark Hall of Fame episode The Magnificent Yankee. Fontanne was a Broadway star for nearly 50 years, beginning in 1910. She was married to her frequent co-star, Lunt until his death in 1977. Although the Lunts scored Oscar nominations for the film version of their Broadway performance in The Guardsmen (1931), they generally shunned films in favor of live theater. They were co-recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1964) and Lifetime Achievement Tony awards (1970). In 1980, Lynne Fontanne accepted Kennedy Center honors on behalf of the "First Couple of the Theatre". Ten Chimneys, was located in Genessee Depot, Wisconsin. WOOD (1892-1978, born Margaret Mary Wood in Brooklyn, New York) appeared in at least 30 Broadway plays over half a century (1911-1960), singing in musicals but also playing comic and dramatic parts. In the 1920s, she was an occasional visitor to the intellectual circle known as the Algonquin Round Table, dining daily at New York's Algonquin Hotel. She played mostly supporting roles in films, but starred in the popular TV series I Remember Mama (1949-1957). She received an Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actress as the Mother Superior in The Sound of Music (1965), although her singing voice was gone by then and her songs had to be dubbed. Photos are lightly toned, spotted, soiled, creased and rippled. Wood's photo is separating from mounting paper. Mounting paper has irregular edges and two binder holes at one edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
