JEZEBEL MOVIE CAST: HENRY FONDA and BETTE DAVIS The two legendary actors signed this black and white publicity photograph that depicts their characters. Preston Dillard puts Julie Marsden's shawl over her shoulders. Printed Photograph Signed in Ink: "Bette Davis" and "Henry Fonda" in black felt tip. 10x8. Actual image 9¼x6¾ with a white border (one surface). For Bette Davis' performance in Jezebel she earned a second Best Actress Oscar, following up her victory in the same category for her performance as Joyce Heath in Dangerous (1935). Screen legend BETTE DAVIS (1908-1989) was nominated for eleven Best Actress Oscars, winning two. She made her screen debut in the film The Bad Sister (1931); after appearances in a few more films that year, it looked like her career would come to an end before it really began. Ultimately, it was British actor George Arliss who resuscitated her career, casting her as the female lead in The Man Who Played God (1932), a movie he starred in. Two years later, she earned her first Academy Award nomination for portraying the cruel Mildred Rogers in Of Human Bondage. After receiving critical acclaim for this performance, her career really took off; over the years, she starred in major films like Jezebel (1938), Now, Voyager (1942), and All About Eve (1950). Following her Oscar nomination for The Star (1952), her career appeared to be on the decline. Throughout the 1950s and into the early 1960s, she appeared in a number of guest roles on television shows such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents (in 1959) and Pocketful of Miracles (in 1961). Davis had a final Oscar nomination in her, however, for her performance as a mentally ill former child star in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). The film starred Davis and Joan Crawford, who famously despised each other even before this movie. The psychological thriller was unlike anything that had appeared on the silver screen before, and it revitalized both actresses at a time when they were entering the twilight of their careers. The film was nominated for five Academy Awards. In 1999, the American Film Institute placed Davis second on their list of the greatest female actresses of all time. HENRY FONDA (1905-1982) enjoyed a highly successful entertainment career spanning nearly 50 years. 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 (1938), Once Upon a Time in the West (1968, 12 Angry Men (1957), and The Grapes of Wrath (1940). During WWII, Fonda enlisted and served three years in the Navy. Serving in Air Combat Intelligence in the Central Pacific, he was awarded a Presidential Citation and the Bronze Star. Fonda also moonlighted as a television actor, starring in two television shows that made their debuts over a decade apart: The Deputy (1959-1961) and The Smith Family (1971-1972). 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. This film is especially notable because the two Fondas, who had a difficult father-daughter relationship in real-life, portrayed a similar relationship in the movie. In 1999, Fonda was named the sixth greatest male actor of all time by the American Film Institute. Some creasing to corners and edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
