JOHN BARRYMORE, SR. (1882-1942) debuted on Broadway in 1903 and in films in 1914. His one chance for greatness occurred in 1922, when he played Hamlet; even British audiences hailed Barrymore's performance as one of the best, if not the best, interpretation of the melancholy Dane. Eventually, Barrymore abandoned the theatre altogether for the movies, where he was often cast more for his looks than his talent. With talkies, Barrymore's days as a romantic lead had passed but his exquisite voice and superb bearing guaranteed him stronger film roles than he had in the silents. His heavy drinking caused him to degenerate into a man old before his time. He was 60 when he died of pneumonia and cirrhosis of the liver. LARRY "BUSTER" CRABBE (1908-1983), born Clarence Linden Crabbe, who won the Gold Medal in the 400-meter swim at the 1932 Olympic games, went on to star in over 100 adventure films, many set in outer space (most as Flash Gordon), and the Wild West (as Billy "the Kid" Carson). In 1933, Crabbe also starred as Tarzan in the Principal Pictures 16-part serial film. Ironically, in winning his Olympic medal, Crabbe had broken the record set by MGM's rival Tarzan, Johnny Weissmuller. LLOYD NOLAN (1902-1985) had his first starring role on Broadway, in One Sunday Afternoon (1933). He originated the role of Captain Queeg on Broadway, too, in The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial. Then he spent over fifty years in movie roles, including starring roles in G-Men (1935), A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (1945), Peyton Place (1957) and Hannah and Her Sisters (1986). Beginning with the title role in Martin Kane, Private Eye (1951), Nolan was also seen often on the small screen. The acting career of GARY COOPER (1901-1961) began with bit parts in 1925, but was firmly established after his role in The Winning of Barbara Worth (1926). He steadily rose to superstar status with his screen persona of a strong, silent man of action and few words. Nominated for Academy Awards five times, Cooper won the 1942 Academy Award for Best Actor for the title role in Sergeant York, and he won the Best Actor Oscar in 1953 for the role of Marshal Will Kane in High Noon. He was also nominated for the role of Longfellow Deeds in Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Lou Gehrig in The Pride of the Yankees and Robert Jordan in For Whom the Bell Tolls. Cooper was awarded a Special Academy Award in 1961 "For his many memorable screen performances and the international recognition he, as an individual, has gained for the motion picture industry." Lightly creased at top blank margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
