Book Photograph signed: "Henry Fonda", "Burt Lancaster" and "Dorothy/Lamour". Color 8½x11. 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 the sixth Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute. Rugged, athletic and handsome, BURT LANCASTER (1913-1994) enjoyed phenomenal success from his first film, The Killers, to his last, Field of Dreams -- a career spanning more than four decades. Lancaster starred in the classic From Here to Eternity, earning a Best Actor Academy Award nomination in 1953 for his performance (in his beachside rendezvous with co-star Deborah Kerr, he created one of the most indelible images in film history). For Elmer Gantry, he won the 1961 Best Actor Oscar for his superb portrayal of the title character, a disreputable evangelist. Some of the other highlights of his career include Sorry, Wrong Number, Jim Thorpe-All American, Come Back, Little Sheba, The Rose Tattoo, Trapeze, Gunfight at the O.K. Corral, Judgment at Nuremberg, The Birdman of Alcatraz, The Professionals and Atlantic City. Actress/singer DOROTHY LAMOUR (1914-1996), born Mary Leta Dorothy Kaumeyer, is best known for the six Road pictures in which she starred with Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, beginning with 1940's Road to Singapore. Lamour, a former band vocalist and radio singer, had first donned a sarong in 1936, the year she signed a contract for Paramount Pictures, in Jungle Princess. A popular performer with the U.S.O., Lamour also appeared in numerous Bob Hope TV specials as well as in TV movies and numerous feature films, including The Hurricane (1937), St. Louis Blues (1939), Beyond the Blue Horizon (1942), The Greatest Show on Earth (1952), Donovan's Reef (1963) and Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976).
