English actor HUGH SINCLAIR (1903-1962) made his London stage debut in 1922 and his film debut a decade later. He appeared in about one British film per year from Our Betters (1933) to Three Steps in the Dark (1953). He was the male lead in Escape Me Never (1935), featured here, and played the gambler father in the film adaptation of D. H. Lawrence's The Rocking Horse Winner (1949). Sinclair played Simon Templar in two of the Saint films (1941-1943). English conductor JULIAN Major Herbert Henniker CLIFFORD (b. 1903), the son of composer and conductor Julian Seymour Clifford, made his conducting debut at Harrogate at age 18. He succeeded his father as conductor of the Eastbourne orchestra in 1924, was one of the first conductors retained by Decca Records in 1929, and was heard frequently on the BBC from the 1930s. In the 1940s and 1950s, he showed a strong interest in ballet performances. NAOMI JACOB (1884-1964) aspired to an acting career, but tuberculosis curtailed it. She retained close associations with the theater, evident in the books to which she turned her talent. Jacob wrote over 50 books, including novels, plays, biographies and memoirs. Her novels, including Gollantz Saga and An Irish Boy, were romantic, but explored social issues like anti-Semitism and domestic violence. English character actor HUGH MILLER (1889-1976) appeared in films for four decades, beginning in the silent era with Bonnie Prince Charlie (1923) and concluding with Lawrence of Arabia (as an unnamed British colonel, 1962). He often appeared in mysteries, including in 1937 Bulldog Drummond at Bay and Return of the Scarlet Pimpernel. He made a few TV appearances, including two episodes of The New Adventures of Charlie Chan (1958). Lightly creased. Lightly worn. Lightly frayed at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
