JOHN BROWN'S BODY: TYRONE POWER, ANNE BAXTER and RAYMOND MASSEY
Black and white publicity photograph still of Tyrone Power, Anne Baxter and Raymond Massey from their production John Brown's Body.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Eugene Coulleb -/Sincerely,/Tyrone Power", "To Eugene/Anne Baxter" and "To Eugene Coulleb/Raymond Massey". B/w, 8x10. Publicity photograph for the touring company of John Brown's Body, for which Power had received critical acclaim during the play's run on Broadway (February 14-April 11, 1953). Originally written by Stephen Vincent Benét, the narrative poem of the American Civil War was adapted by Charles Laughton, who directed the play at the New Century Theatre. The play also starred Raymond Massey and Dame Judith Anderson. Anne Baxter took over Anderson's role in the touring company of the production. Despite this being the only time that Power and Massey appeared together, the two were close friends and Massey was an honorary pallbearer at Power's funeral. One of filmdom's most popular swashbuckling actors, TYRONE POWER (1913-1958) starred in such adventure films as Suez, The Mark of Zorro, Blood and Sand, The Black Swan, Captain from Castile, The Black Rose and King of the Khyber Rifles. Twentieth Century Fox's most popular box office attraction, he was cast in practically every major production turned out by the studio from 1936-1940. After the 44-year-old Power died of a heart attack in Spain on the set of Solomon and Sheba, Yul Brynner replaced him as Solomon. ANNE BAXTER (1923-1985) won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for The Razor's Edge (1946) and was nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for All About Eve (1950). She also played Queen Nerfertiti in The Ten Commandments (1956). Baxter's television credits include a starring role in the series, Hotel (1983-1986). In 1931, RAYMOND MASSEY (1896-1983) starred in his first talking picture as Sherlock Holmes in The Speckled Band. He divided his time between stage and screen, offering excellent performances in major motion-picture efforts (The Scarlet Pimpernal, 1935 and Things to Come, 1936). Massey's appearance in Abe Lincoln in Illinois was his most famous role; he appeared in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway production and then repeated his Lincoln characterization in this film version, earning an Academy Award nomination as Best Actor. Twenty-two years later, Massey played a cameo as Honest Abe in How the West Was Won (1962). On television, he hosted the 1955 syndicated anthology I Spy, and more memorably starred as Dr. Gillespie in the 1960 weekly series, Dr. Kildare. Creased at blank margins and corners. Surface creases, diagonal crease at the "Ty" of Tyrone, light diagonal crease at the "mo" of Raymond.
