Printed photograph signed in ink: "Valerie/Harper", "Alan/Arkin", B/w 10x8. Multi-talented ALAN ARKIN (b. 1934) is a distinguished actor of stage and screen as well as a stage director, songwriter and singer. He made his Hollywood debut in the gentle but hilarious sleeper The Russians Are Coming! The Russians Are Coming! (1966). Arkin's portrayal of a Russian officer posing as a Norwegian sailor in a Nantucket town won him his first Oscar nomination. The following year, he demonstrated his versatility by offering a chilling portrayal of a villain in Wait Until Dark. Further acclaim greeted the actor in 1968 when received his second Oscar nomination for his portrayal of a deaf-mute in The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter. The role also won Arkin a New York Film Critics Circle award. He continued riding high in 1970, when he played Yossarian, the part for which he is still best remembered, in Mike Nichols' serio-comic adaptation of Joseph Heller's Catch-22.Five years later, he earned a second New York Film Critics Circle award for his work in Hearts of the West. His career enjoyed a second wind in the 1990s, with the actor appearing in substantial roles in a number of films. Some of the highlights included Edward Scissorhands (1990), Glengarry Glen Ross (1992) and Grosse Pointe Blank (1997). After winning three Emmys for her character of Rhoda Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1971-1973), VALERIE HARPER (b. 1939) earned a fourth for the spinoff series, Rhoda, in 1975. Though it opened to excellent ratings, Rhoda was never as big a hit as Mary Tyler Moore, and it left the air in 1978. During this period, Harper made her formal film debut in Freebie and the Bean (1974), earning a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of a Puerto Rican housewife. She returned to the weekly-series grind in 1986 with Valerie. Harper won a $1.4 million damage award for wrongful firing from this series. She has starred in two series since leaving Valerie (1990's City and 1995's The Office) but has been unable to latch onto a character with the staying power of Rhoda Morgenstern. Corners worn and creased. Lightly toned, esp. on upper margin. Light surface creases. Ink and pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Slight surface striations. Otherwise, fine condition.
