Printed photograph signed: "Don Ameche" in blue ink and "Wilford Brimley" in black felt. 10x8. Don Ameche (1908-1993) played mostly second leads until 1939, when he memorably played the title role in The Story of Alexander Graham Bell. (For years afterward a telephone was often called an "ameche". That same year he portrayed D'Artagnan in a musical comedy version of The Three Musketeers, and he had major starring roles throughout the 1940s. (He also co-starred with Frances Langford in the long-running radio series, The Bickersons. Much less active in the next three decades, despite some low budget films and TV guest roles, he made a big comeback in the 1980s. In 1985, Ameche starred in Cocoon and won the 1986 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. It was his only Oscar nomination. He followed up that role to even more acclaim in 1988's concoction Things Change. Before his death in 1993, Ameche rounded out his career with short but acclaimed performances in Oscar (1991) and Corrina, Corrina (1994). Portly, handlebar-mustached Wilford Brimley (b. 1934) 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. Fine condition.
