The famed actress and actor sign this show bill for the production of Dr. Angelus in black ink
Show Bill Signed: "Molly Urquhart" and "George Cole" in black ink. Four pages. 5x8. Show Bill for the production of Dr. Angelus by James Bridie at the Phoenix Theatre, London. MOLLY URQUHART (1906-1977) was a Scottish actress whose roles included the maid in A Man For All Seasons and the matron in Doctor Finlay's and the matron in Doctor Finlay's Casebook. She was one of the co-founders of Glasgow's Curtain theatre company in 1933, and during World War Two Molly set up and ran her own theatre company, the MSU Theatre in Dumbarton, Scotland. A familiar face on British television, GEORGE COLE (1925-2015) debuted on the London stage at age 14 (1939). His film credits include Quartet (1948), The Belles of St. Trinian's (1953), Cleopatra (as Flavius, 1963) and Mary Reilly (as Dr. Jekyll's butler Poole, 1996). Cole appeared in several TV series, beginning in 1960, playing everything from a haughty aristocrat in Blott on the Landscape to a communist in Comrade Dad. He is best known, however, for his portrayal of Arthur Daley, a shady cockney businessman always hatching a business scheme ("a nice little earner") on Minder (1988-1994). So identified did Cole become with this role that he complained of difficulty getting his checks accepted at business establishments. MOLLY URQUHART appeared as Jeanie. The play was a burlesque of a comedy-thriller based on a famous Glasgow murderer, Dr. E.W. Pritchard, who poisoned his wife and mother-in-law and was the first man to have a public hanging on Glasgow Green in 1865. Set in 1919, when the play opens Dr. Angelus (Alastair Sim) is supposedly trying to cure his mother-in-law who is very ill, but he is, in fact, stuffing her full of antimony and when she dies, he asks the new young partner, Dr. Johnson (GEORGE COLE), to sign the death certificate. When Mrs. Angelus becomes ill with the same symptoms, Johnson gets very anxious indeed, and when she dies, Johnson refuses to sign the death certificate, culminating in a battle of wills between the two physicians. Pen notations on top (unknown hand). Lightly creased and soiled. Otherwise, fine condition.
