Laser Media Cover signed: "Regards/Burt Young", "Jennifer/Jason Leigh". Color, 12¼x12¼. Laser disc cover for the film Last Exit to Brooklyn (1989). Disc not included. Hubert Selby's controversial novel Last Exit to Brooklyn (1964) was made into a film in 1989. Though its limited release and grim subject matter limited its audience, the film received critical praise. Throughout her career, JENNIFER JASON LEIGH(b. 1962) has made a name for herself portraying helpless, damaged or mentally unsound characters, often performing at a higher level than the material. Her breakthrough role came in 1982 as the naïve high school girl who gets an abortion in Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Leigh occasionally stepped out of her down-and-out roles, and in 1994 she shined as Amy Archer in The Hudsucker Proxy. Her comic turn as a plucky undercover journalist was said to recall the work of legendary actresses such as Katharine Hepburn and Barbara Stanwyck. Leigh delivered critically acclaimed performances in her next two films, Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle and Georgia. BURT YOUNG (born Jerry De Louise in 1940) was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Sylvester Stallone's brother-in-law, Paulie, in Rocky (1976), a character he reprised in all the Rocky sequels. Young, who had made his film debut in The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight (1971), was usually cast as a thug or villain. His film credits number exceed 60 and include Chinatown (1974), The Choir Boys (1977), Convoy (1978), Betsy's Wedding (1990) and The Adventures of Pluto Nash (2002). Young has also appeared in a number of made for television movies and series, including Baretta (1975, 1976) and Columbo (1994) bringing his overall credits to well over 100. Additionally, Young is an accomplished artist whose paintings have been exhibited in galleries from Hawaii to New York. An author/writer he has written 2 stage plays and 3 TV episodes. Lightly scuffed and creased. Small stain near lower right corner. Light impression and scuff marks from disc. Light scratches (not visible head-on), impressions and horizontal striations on cover.
