The actor/singer pens a note to TV/Radio host George Sanders
Autograph Note Signed: "To George!/My best wishes!/Anthony Newley/12 Jan. 1978.", 5½x8. Magazine photograph, b/w, ¾x¾, affixed at lower right margin. Ink caption (unknown hand) at lower margin: "Anthony Newley - Actor, Singer, Composer/'What Kind of a Fool am I' - 'Stop the World, I Want to Get off.'" Multitalented British entertainer Anthony Newley (1931-1999), born George Anthony Newley, was nominated for six Tony Awards: four in 1963 for Stop the World - I Want to Get Off, for which he was nominated for Best Actor (Musical), Best Author (Musical), Best Composer and Lyricist, and two in 1965 for The Roar of the Greasepaint -- The Smell of the Crowd, for which he was nominated for Best Director (Musical) and Best Composer and Lyricist. Newley, who began his show business career on the stage at the age of 14, first gained notice in films as the Artful Dodger in Oliver Twist (1948). After making his film debut a year earlier (Dusty Bates, 1947), he would go on to star in a number of films through 1992 (Boris and Natasha), most notably The Cockleshell Heroes (1955), Doctor Doolitle (1967) and The Old Curiosity Shop (1975). Newley was also featured in a long list of made-for-TV movies, and he guest starred on a long list of TV shows from 1956 (Colonel March of Scotland Yard) to 1998 (EastEnders). A talented singer as well as writer, producer and director, Newley had his first hit song, "Idle on Parade" in the late 1950s, and he would go on to chart seven times, including two No. 1 singles ("Why?" and "Do You Mind?"), in 1960. Newley also co-composed (with Leslie Bricusse) a number of hit songs, including "The Candy Man" and "Goldfinger". His second wife (1963-1970) was actress Joan Collins, with whom he had two children. George R. Sanders, originally a disc jockey, became a prominent radio/TV interview host, first in Los Angeles and later in Portland. Lightly creased. Light impression of writing (barely visible) at signature and writing. Paper remnants on verso (no show through). Irregular left edge from removal from bound book. Fine condition.
