Photograph signed: "Jessica Tandy" and "Hume Cronyn", B/w 8x10. The 1987 film *batteries not included is a family science fiction film directed by Mathew Robins and distributed by Universal Pictures. It is about small extraterrestrial living machines that save a New York City apartment block under threat from property development. Hume Cronyn plays Frank Riley, husband of Faye Riley, played by Jessica Tandy. The two own a café in the apartment block. It debuted at No. 4 at the box office. Jessica Tandy (1909-1994) was among the grand dames of stage and screen. She earned Tony awards for the premier of A Streetcar Named Desire (1947) and The Gin Game (1978). She won an Oscar as Best Actress for Driving Miss Daisy (1989), and won her third Tony for her work in 1983's Foxfire (she would win an Emmy in 1987 for the same role in the play's televised version). In 1942, she married Canadian stage and screen actor Hume Cronyn and they remained professional and personal partners until Tandy's death in 1994. Canadian actor Hume Cronyn (1911-2003) entered film in 1943 and was nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor the following year for The Seventh Cross. He worked frequently with Alfred Hitchcock, adapting plays and novels for the screen and acting in both Hitchcock films and TV episodes. Married to Oscar-winning actress Jessica Tandy from 1942 until her death in 1994, Cronyn co-starred often with her. The couple was especially popular as married senior citizens in such films as Cocoon (1985), as well as the stage and TV versions of The Gin Game. Cronyn remained active after Jessica's death, being mistaken for Santa Claus in Off Season (2001). The photo shares the 8x10 page with a photograph for 1988 American comedy.
