Ashley (1904-2000, born Edward Ashley Cooper) was an American actor who got his start in English movies. Always a bridesmaid but never a bride, Ashley had only four starring film roles, but nevertheless soldiered on between 1932 and 1988, with roles in almost 60 movies and TV shows. His dearth of starring roles wasn't for lack of trying. His Hollywood debut was Pride and Prejudice (1940), and he tried to bank on his resemblance to Errol Flynn playing a bandit called the Fox in Danny Kaye's The Court Jester (1956). But Ashley was just another handsome Englishman in Hollywood in 1940, and Kaye stole all of his thunder in The Court Jester (and even impersonated Ashley's character!). He kept acting, though, with roles in potboilers like Herbie Rides Again (1973) and Won Ton Ton, The Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976) and as a guest star on TV after 1954. Lightly toned, creased and bowed. Adhesive residue on verso. Otherwise in fine condition.
