Harry Lillis "BING" CROSBY (1904-1977) won the 1944 Academy Award for Best Actor for Going My Way. He was also nominated for Best Actor Oscars for The Bells of St. Mary's (1945) and The Country Girl (1954). Known for his relaxed "crooning" style of singing, Crosby recorded more than 1,600 songs that sold at least 500 million copies. His 1942 single of "White Christmas" sold more than 30 million copies worldwide and was the best-selling single in any music category for more than 50 years. JACQUES BRUGNON (1895-1978) was one of the "Four Musketeers," French stars of international tennis in the 1920s and 1930s. He won ten Grand Slam doubles tournaments, including all four of the major Opens (British, French, US and Australian). He entered the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1976. GOTTFRIED VON CRAMM (1909-1976), a tennis star of the 1930s, won the French Open in singles twice (1934, 1936), and prevailed in the US Open and at Wimbledon in doubles and mixed doubles competition. He was 4-time German national champion. Frequently in trouble with the Nazis for refusing to cooperate with their propaganda, he was denied permission to leave the country for some tournaments and was jailed for 6 months on a morals charge in 1938, despite protests from the world tennis community. During World War II, he won an Iron Cross in combat on the Eastern Front, only to be dismissed from the German Army when the morals charges were revived. Returning to tennis after the war, he regained the German national title in 1948. He entered the sport's hall of fame in 1977. Binding holes at right margin, ink and pencil notes (unknown hand), lightly aged on edges. Ink caption misspells Cramm's name. Otherwise, fine condition.
