The Academy Award nominated actor signs a 3¾x3¾ yellow sheet of paper in black ink.
Signature: "Lew Ayres" in black ink, 3¾x3¾ yellow sheet of paper. Lew Ayres (1908-1996) starred opposite Greta Garbo in one of the last silent films, The Kiss (1929), then starred in 1930's 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 TV because cigarettes were to be advertised on the program. Ayers' conscientious objector got him temporarily blacklisted in Hollywood during World War II, until his heroism as a medical corpsman became known. Ayers remained active in movie and TV character roles through the 1980s. In 1982, Ayres guest starred on episodes of Knots Landing, Trapper John, M.D. and Little House on the Prairie. Toned at left edge. Ink note (unknown hand) at top right. Otherwise, fine condition.
