CORNEL WILDE The actor pays his dues to the IRS with this check for $5000.00 Check signed: "Cornel Wilde" in black ink, 8¼x3¼. Los Angeles, California, March 7, 1947. Check no. 120, drawn on the joint account of Cornel Wilde and Patricia Wilde at Security First National Bank, Los Angeles, California. Payable to Collector of Internal Revenue for $5000.00. The film career of multilingual Cornel Wilde (1912-1989) took off when he earned a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his role as Chopin in A Song to Remember (1945). Other big roles followed in pictures such as Forever Amber (1947) and The Greatest Show on Earth (1952). Wilde, who produced many of his own films, often starred in historical epics (Constantine and the Cross, 1962). His last starring role was in The Norseman (1978). Interestingly, Wilde gave up a spot on the 1936 U.S. Olympic fencing team to pursue an acting career. In fact, he served as a fencing instructor for the Broadway version of Olivier's Hamlet (1940). Patricia Knight (formerly Patricia Wilde, 1920-2004) was an American stage and film actress and Cornel Wilde's first wife. They were married from 1937 until 1951. She had a notable stage career and at times acted alongside her husband in movies such as Moon Over Mulberry Street (1938). Wilde helped Knight land a few movie roles, including her part in Roses Are Red (1947), but his uncontrollable jealously ultimately ended the couple's marriage. Cancellation holes. Bank processing stamps on front and verso. Toned. Staple holes at top left margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
