In 1935, Don Ameche (1908-1993) won a bit part in Clive of India (he was credited as "Prisoner in the Black Hole"). He was so memorable in the title role in 1939's The Story of Alexander Graham Bell that for years afterward a telephone was known as an "ameche". Ameche continued working steadily through the mid-1940s. During the 1950s, he worked occasionally on television, and he began appearing infrequently in low-budget films during the 1960s and 1970s. In 1985, Ameche starred in Cocoon and won the 1986 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.It was his only Oscar nomination. Ameche followed up that role to even more acclaim in 1988's Things Change. Before his death in 1993, Ameche rounded out his career with brief but memorable performances in Oscar (1991) and Corrina, Corrina (1994). Nanci Crompton appeared in several television series in the late 1940's and early 1950's. Photograph is lightly rippled. Binding holes at blank right edge. Fine condition.
