One of the cinema's most enduring actors, Henry Fonda (1905-1982) enjoyed a highly successful career spanning close to a half century. His first important Broadway part was in the first edition of New Faces in 1934. That was followed by the title role in The Farmer Takes a Wife, which he repeated in Hollywood the following year. Two years later, Fonda was an established star appearing in such films as Jezebel, Jesse James, Young Mr. Lincoln, Drums Along the Mohawk and The Grapes of Wrath. Fonda enlisted and served three years in the Navy during WWII-serving in Air Combat Intelligence in the Central Pacific, he was awarded a Presidential Citation and the Bronze Star. In March 1982, five months before he died at the age of 77, Henry Fonda won his only Academy Award for his performance in On Golden Pond, co-starring Katharine Hepburn and his daughter, Jane Fonda. In 1999, Fonda was named thesixth Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners lightly worn and creased. Lightly toned around edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
