BERYL REID
Large 11¾x9¾ b/w bust photo of Tony and BAFTA TV Award-winning actress Beryl Reid in a white dress and cheek-to-cheek with a statue of Mercury, signed "With lots of love and good wishes for you"
Inscribed photograph signed "To Joann/With lots of love and/good wishes for you/Sincerely Yours/Beryl.". Pencil notations on verso in unknown hand. B/w, 11¾x9¾, printed on cardstock, affixed to a same-size sheet of paper. British actor and comedienne Reid (1920-1996) got her start in a revue during the summer of 1936 in the resort town of Bridlington. Despite having no formal training, she joined the Royal National Theatre in London as a comedy actress and went on to appear in almost 80 movies and TV shows between 1948 and 1994. Ever cheerful and bright, Reid specialized in slightly sauced old ladies later in her career. She acted against type when she portrayed sadistic, cigar-chomping lesbian June Buckridge in the original 1964 West End production of The Killing of Sister George. But the stretch paid off. She went on to win a Tony Award for her reprisal of Buckridge in the original Broadway version (1966-1967), as well as a Golden Globe nomination for her reprisal in the 1968 film adaptation. She also portrayed Soviet intelligence specialist Connie Sachs in two BBC-TV adaptations of John le Carré novels, Tinker, Sailor, Soldier, Spy (1979) and Smiley's People (1982), winning a BAFTA TV award for her performance in Smiley's People. Reid was made an Officer of the British Empire in 1986. Lightly toned, silvered, creased and bowed. Signature has low contrast but is legible. Light chipping and paper loss at top edge. Paper on verso has ragged edges. Mounting remnants on verso (no show-through). Otherwise in fine condition.
