If it is at all possible I would like to have the pictures saved for me as I have no other copies.

Eric Sinclair (1922-2004) was a prolific stage, television and movie actor, with a career spanning almost fifty years. Sinclair made his Broadway debut in Legend of Lovers (1951) and later as Count Claudio of Florence in Much Ado About Nothing (1952) for which he won a Theatre World Award. He appeared in dozens of movies such as Cyrano de Bergerac (1950), War of the Satellites (1958), and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969). Furthermore, his television credits include Robert Montgomery Presents (1955), Perry Mason (1957) and Days of Our Lives (1979). Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, also furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. Light surface creases.
