CORNEL WILDE The famed actor and producer signs this check for $600.00 in black felt tip Check signed: "Cornel Wilde" in black ink, 8¼x3¾. April 2, 1966. Check no. 50 drawn on his joint account with then-wife Jean Wallace Wilde at Security First National Bank in Los Angeles, California. Payable for $60.00 to Frank Watanabe (not endorsed on verso). 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). Actress Jean Wallace was Cornel Wilde's second wife. The two divorced in 1981. Gently creased throughout. Corners worn and creased. Toned. Ink bank stamps on verso, with light show-through to front affecting signature. Bank cancellation holes at center. Otherwise, fine condition.
