The Oscar-nominated actor signed this index card in ink
Signature: "Best wishes/ Lew Ayres 1981", 5x3 card. Lew Ayres (1908-1996) starred opposite Greta Garbo in one of the last silent films, The Kiss (1929), and then starred in the 1930 Oscar-winning talking film, All Quiet on the Western Front. A leading man through the 1940s, he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in Johnny Belinda (1948). He starred as Dr. Kildare in a series of feature films, but refused to play the role on television because cigarettes were to be advertised on the program. Misidentified as a conscientious objector because of his desire to serve as a combat medic, Ayers was temporarily blacklisted in Hollywood during World War II. He remained active in movie and television character roles through the 1980s, but never achieved the same level of popularity he had in the period just before WWII. Credits Ayres earned later in his career include Lime Street (1985) alongside Robert Wagner and guest appearances on Little House on the Prairie and Knots Landing (both in 1982). The actor was awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960. Fine condition.
