ANTHONY ASQUITH
Small trapezoidal card signed "Sincerely" by Asquith
Autograph sentiment signed "Sincerely/Anthony Asquith". 2½x2¼ card. Asquith, son of British Prime Minister Herbert Henry Asquith, directed films from 1927 to 1964, many of them adaptations of plays. Asquith co-founded the London Film Society to push the adaptation of foreign cinematic techniques to boost the English film industry. The society included master playwright George Bernard Shaw, which led to his 1938 screen adaptation of Pygmalion (1938). It was his first successful screen adaptation of a play and led to other screen adaptations like French Without Tears (1940), The Winslow Boy (1949) and The Browning Version (1951), all plays by Terence Rattigan, and Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest (1952). All these adaptations earned Asquith an unfair reputation as a one-trick pony. But he could and did direct fine original works, like the wartime films The Demi-Paradise (1943) and The Way to the Stars (1945), as well as The V. I. P.s (1963) and The Yellow Rolls-Royce (1964), both with original screenplays by Rattigan. Lightly toned and foxed. Adhesive residue on verso (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition.
