A vintage 3x5 candid photo of the Academy award winning actor smiling in a sharp suit and tie
Photograph Signed: "Gig Young". B/w, 3x5, 3½x5½ overall (one surface). Candid photo. Gig Young (1913-1978) made his screen debut in 1941 in You're in the Army Now under his birth name, Byron Barr. The following year, he played a character named Gig Young in The Gay Sisters, and subsequently changed his name to that of his character as there was already an actor named Byron Barr in Hollywood. Young, who was awarded the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award in 1969 for They Shoot Horses, Don't They?, was also nominated in that category for Come Fill the Cup (1951) and Teacher's Pet (1958). He also appeared in a number of other films, including Sergeant York (1941), Kid Galahad and That Touch of Mink (both in 1962), and appeared on several television shows, including The Twilight Zone. This photograph is from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane, Hawaii natives who moved to California in the 1920's. Francis Zane had a job at the historic Curran Theater and the San Francisco Opera House, which is where he began his massive collection, with photographs and materials ranging from the 1920's to 1960's. The location and luck of his occupation would land him smack dab in the middle of the celebrity world, allowing him to capture some of the most unique and interesting pieces of Hollywood History. Lightly bowed. Fine condition.
