CHARLES COBURN The bearded actor stands alongside Don Ameche and Spring Byington in this 10x8 b/w photograph signed in green ink Photograph Signed: “Tempus fugite [time to fly] / Charles Coburn” 10x8 b/w. This photograph is a frame from the 1939 film The Story of Alexander Graham Bell and shows Don Ameche (playing the titular role) showing his new invention to Coburn's Gardiner Greene Hubbard, the co-founder of Bell Telephone Company, as well as Spring Byington as Mrs. Hubbard. Broadway actor, producer and director Charles Coburn (1877-1961) 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. Pinholes in each corner. Foxed and worn corners. Stamps on verso (no bleed through). Creasing in bottom right corner. Edges worn.
