JAMES STEWART (1908-1997) starred in more recognized masterpieces of the American cinema than any other actor. In 1940, he won the Best Actor Academy Award for The Philadelphia Story, and he was nominated for Oscars in the same category for Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), It's A Wonderful Life (1946), Harvey (1950) and Anatomy of a Murder (1959). Stewart, who was awarded an Honorary Academy Award in 1984, also appeared in You Can't Take It With You, Destry Rides Again, Rear Window, Vertigo, The Spirit of St. Louis, The Greatest Show on Earth and a long list of other features. In 1947, actor KARL MALDEN, (1912-2009), created the role of Mitch, the erstwhile beau of Blanche Dubois, in Tennessee Williams' Broadway play, A Streetcar Named Desire. He repeated the role in the 1951 film version, winning the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award. Malden was also nominated for an Oscar in the same category for his performance in On the Waterfront (1954). He was best known to TV fans of the 1970s as Lieutenant Mike Stone, the no-nonsense protagonist of the long-running cop series The Streets of San Francisco (1972-1977). During that time, he mentored a young actor named Michael Douglas, who played Inspector Steve Keller from 1972-1976. ELI WALLACH (1915-2014) was an American actor who made his presence felt on stage and on the screen. He made his Broadway debut in 1945, making his television debut six years later in an episode of Lights Out (1946-1952). After proving his acting chops in various other guest appearances on television, he made his film debut in Baby Doll (1956), a film written by Tennessee Williams and directed by Elia Kazan. Wallach notched a Golden Globe nomination for his portrayal of Silva Vacarro. The actor racked up over 150 acting credits, including major roles in films like The Magnificent Seven (1960), The Misfits (1961), The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966), The Godfather: Part III (1990), and Mystic River (2003). Wallach spent most of his career playing mobsters and other exotic outlaws. He also maintained a stage career, appearing in dozens of stage productions on Broadway and Off-Broadway until 2000. Perhaps his most famous stage work came in the 1951 production The Rose Tattoo, another piece written by Tennessee Williams. He earned his only Tony Award for this role. After marrying Anne Jackson in 1948, the two often appeared on stage together in Williams plays. Despite his numerous iconic screen credits, Wallach always insisted that the live theater stage was a higher plane of art. Over the course of his 60-year acting career, Wallach won a Tony Award (1951), an Emmy Award (1967), and an Obie Award (1963). Fine condition.
