COCOON: THE RETURN MOVIE CAST: WILFORD BRIMLEY, HUME CRONYN, JESSICA TANDY and MAUREEN STAPLETONCast members Brimley, Cronyn, Tandy and Stapleton sign promotional pictures from their film Cocoon: The Return Photograph signed: "Jessica Tandy", "Hume Cronyn", "Maureen Stapleton", and "Wilford Brimley". Possessing a great dignity tempered by the humorous sparkle in her clear blue eyes, JESSICA TANDY (1909-1994) was among the grande dames of stage and screen. She earned Tony awards for the premier of A Streetcar Named Desire (1947) and The Gin Game (1978). She won an Oscar as Best Actress for Driving Miss Daisy (1989), and won her third Tony for her work in 1983's Foxfire (she would win an Emmy in 1987 for the same role in the play's televised version). In 1942, she married Canadian stage and screen actor Hume Cronyn and they remained professional and personal partners until Tandy's death in 1994. Canadian actor HUME CRONYN (1911-2003) entered film in 1943 and was nominated for an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor the following year for The Seventh Cross. He worked frequently with Alfred Hitchcock, adapting plays and novels for the screen and acting in both Hitchcock films and TV episodes. Married to Oscar-winning actress Jessica Tandy from 1942 until her death in 1994, Cronyn co-starred often with her. The couple was especially popular as married senior citizens in such films as Cocoon (1985), as well as stage and TV versions of The Gin Game. Cronyn remained active after Jessica's death, being mistaken for Santa Claus in Off Season (2001). Stage, screen and television actress MAUREEN STAPLETON (1925-2006) received three nominations for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress (Lonelyhearts, 1958; Airport, 1970; Interiors, 1978) before winning the Oscar the fourth time (Reds, 1981). She also earned six Tony nominations, winning twice: Best Featured Actress for The Rose Tattoo (1951) and Best Actress for The Gingerbread Lady (1971). Portly, handlebar-mustached WILFORD BRIMLEY (1934-2020) entered films in the 1960s as a cowboy stunt man. He worked primarily in supporting roles until finally achieving star status in the 1980s via his gruff, fatherly roles in such films as The Thing (1981), Hotel New Hampshire (1984), The Natural (1984) and Cocoon (1986). On television, Brimley starred in the 1980s family drama/comedy Our House. In addition to his film and television work, Brimley worked for a time as the commercial spokesperson for the Quaker Oats company. Light surface creases. Corners rounded. Otherwise, fine condition.
