CHASE A CROOKED SHADOW: RICHARD TODD, DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS, JR and ANNE BAXTER
Richard Todd, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Anne Baxter sign a sepia tone publicity photograph for their movie Chase A Crooked Shadow.
Photograph signed: "Richard Todd", "Douglas Fairbanks Jr" and "Sincerely/Anne Baxter". Sepia tone, 10x8. Typed caption affixed to verso: "How do you like me in this? Ann Baxter chooses this style of sun-bonnet - and the style obviously meets with the approval of Richard Todd and producer Douglas Fairbanks. They were on a shopping spree during a lull in location shooting for CHASE A CROOKED SH ADOW. Produced by Douglas Fairbanks and directed by Michael Anderson, CHASE A CROOKED SHADOW is an Associated Dragon Production for Warner Bros." Fairbanks produced this 1958 British psychological thriller, which starred Todd as Ward Prescott and Baxter as Kimberley. DOUGLAS FAIRBANKS, JR. (1909-2000), the son of the dashing actor of the 1920s and Anna Beth Sully, the daughter of an industrialist, was raised by his mother after his parents' divorce in 1918. At the age of 13, he starred in Lasky's Stephen Steps Out, an unsuccessful attempt to exploit the Fairbanks name. Although the younger Fairbanks, a movie producer as well as an actor, appeared in some 75 films, his father took little interest in his son's career, and the two did not become close friends until the early 1930s. His feature films included Stella Dallas (1926), Little Caesar (1930), The Prisoner of Zenda (1937), Gunga Din (1939) and Sinbad the Sailor (1947), and Fairbanks also appeared in a number of made-for-TV movies and hosted the anthology series, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. Presents (1952-1955). In the 1930s, he was married to actress Joan Crawford. Irish-born stage and screen actor RICHARD TODD made his film debut in 1949 and soon became a leading man in British films. He had similar success in the U.S., most notably as Peter Marshall in A Man Called Peter (1955). His other film credits include The Story of Robin Hood (1952), Rob Roy (1953), The Longest Day (1962), Operation Crossbow (1965), Asylum (1972) and The Big Sleep (1978), and Todd also appeared on the small screen in made-for-TV movies and miniseries as well as in guest appearances on several U.S. and British series. Stage, screen and television actress ANNE BAXTER (1923-1985) won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for The Razor's Edge (1946) and was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for All About Eve (1950). Among her many film roles were Queen Nerfertiti in The Ten Commandments (1956), and Baxter's TV work includes a starring role in the TV series Hotel (1983-1986). Baxter was the granddaughter of renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Label with pencil notes also affixed to verso. Minor surface creases (most not evident head on). Overall, fine condition.
