A still from King signed by Paul Winfield and Cicely Thomas
Photograph signed: "Cicely/Tyson", "Paul/Winfield", in black ink, B/w 7x9. A still from the film King. Stage, screen and television actor PAUL WINFIELD (1941-2004) was nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award (Sounder, 1972) and two Emmy Awards (for the 1978 mini-series, King, based on the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Roots: The Next Generation, 1979), and he won the 1995 Emmy for his role as Judge Harold Nance on Picket Fences. Trained for the stage, Winfield got his big break playing Paul Cameron on the ground-breaking TV series, Julia (1968-1971). After making his film debut in 1969 (The Lost Man), Winfield starred in a long list of feature films, including Huckleberry Finn (1974), Twilight's Last Gleaming (1977), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982), The Terminator (1984), Presumed Innocent (1990), Dennis the Menace (1993) and Mars Attacks! (1996). He was just as prolific on the small screen, appearing in dozens of made-for-TV movies, miniseries and documentaries, and Winfield appeared as a guest star in series ranging from Perry Mason (1965) to Touched By An Angel (2003). He was also a regular on several TV series, including The Charmings (1987, voice of the Magic Mirror), Wiseguy (1989) and 227 (1989-1990). CICELY THOMAS (b. 1933) is an award winning actress, amassing an amazing 30 plus wins for her work on both stage and film. She began her career as a model, being a successful face for Ebony magazine, but eventually transitioning into the acting world. He first credited role was in a special broadcast on NBC called Frontiers of Faith (1951), though the role was small, and by far no indication of her future success. She would work through minor roles on Broadway and television, appearing in the original cast of the off Broadway play The Blacks (1961), alongside other prolific black figures and actors, including Maya Angelou, James Earl Jones, Roscoe Lee Brown, and Charles Gordone. However, she wouldn't truly be noticed by the public eye until her role in the critically acclaimed film Sounder (1974), receiving an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. Since then, she has won awards for countless performances, including two Emmys, several Image Awards, one SAG award, two Drama Desk Awards, and most recently, a Tony award for her role in the 2013 play The Trip is Bountiful. A truly historic actress, she continues to appear in many films and stage works, and shows no signs of slowing down. Light surface creases. Photo info attached to verso and folded to front.
