BASIL SYDNEY (1894-1968) rose to matinee idol status with the London stage hit Romance. Though he spent most of the 1930s in America, Sydney avoided film work in Hollywood because producers would not honor his request that he only appear in movie versions of Shakespeare and Shaw. Resettling in England in the early 1940s, in addition to this film, he appeared in the 1948 film version of Hamlet. He also appeared in Walt Disney's British-filmed Treasure Island (1950) and Around the World in 80 Days (1956). Lightly creased. Slightly soiled. Irregular left edge due to removal from book.
