Signature: "Charles Coburn" and on verso "Lana Turner", 6x4¼ album leaf. Ink note on both sides (unknown hand) dating signatures June 26, 1945. Broadway actor, producer and director CHARLES COBURN (1877-1961), born Charles Douville Coburn, did not appear in his first feature film (Of Human Hearts) until 1938, when he was 61. In 1940, he portrayed Dr. Henry Gordon, who unjustly amputated Drake McHugh's (Ronald Reagan) legs in Kings Row, resulting in the future President's greatest screen line (and title of his first autobiography): "Where's the rest of me?" Coburn was nominated for three Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor (1941, The Devil and Miss Jones; 1943, The More the Merrier; 1946, The Green Years). He won in 1943 for his portrayal of elderly Benjamin Dingle, a likable business executive forced by the wartime housing shortage to share a Washington D.C. apartment with Jean Arthur and Joel McCrea. One of the most glamorous superstars of Hollywood's golden era, LANA TURNER (1921-1995) made her film debut in 1937's They Won't Forget. Called "The Sweater Girl", emphasizing her main qualifications at the time, she ranked among the nation's top pin-up girls. In 1957, she was nominated for an Academy Award as Best Actress in Peyton Place. Lightly frayed at left edge. Slightly creased. Slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
