Movie still showing the three in conversation
Photograph signed: "Lew Ayres/Best Wishes/1994", "Laraine/Day", "Cordially/Robert Young". B/w with green hue, 8x10. Shown in a still from Dr. Kildare's Crisis (1940). Also shown but not signing is Lionel Barrymore as "Dr. Gillespie". LEW AYRES (1908-1996) starred opposite Greta Garbo in one of the last silent films, The Kiss (1929), then starred in 1930's Oscar-winning talking film, All Quiet on the Western Front. A leading man through the 1940s, he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in Johnny Belinda (1948). He starred as Dr. Kildare in a series of 9 feature films (1938-1942), but refused to play the role on TV because cigarettes were to be advertised on the program. Ayers' conscientious objector got him temporarily blacklisted in Hollywood during World War II, until his heroism as a medical corpsman became known. Ayers remained active in movie and TV character roles through the 1980s. LARAINE DAY (1917-2007) reached stardom as Nurse Lamont opposite Lew Ayres in the Dr. Kildare films. Other starring roles for Day included Hitchcock's Foreign Correspondent (1940, The Story of Dr. Wassell (1944), My Dear Secretary (1948) and The High and the Mighty (1954). She was married to baseball manager Leo Durocherfrom 1947-1960). Perhaps best known as Jim Anderson on Father Knows Best (television, 1954-1960; radio 1949-1954) and the title practitioner on television's Marcus Welby, M.D. (1969-1976), ROBERT YOUNG (1907-1998) also appeared in over 100 films. In some screen roles, such as the cold-blooded spy in Hitchcock's Secret Agent (1936) and the no-good philanderer in They Won't Believe Me (1947), Young showed an acting range far wider than his likeable and wholesome TV characters. In Dr. Kildare's Crisis, Young played the brother of Nurse Lamont (Day), diagnosed with epilepsy. This film's treatment of epilepsy evoked a protest from the Medical Society of New York. Fine condition.
