The actor is shown as disillusioned German soldier Paul Banner in the 1930 Academy Award-winning WWI film, All Quiet on the Western Front.
Photograph signed: "Lew Ayres 1981/Photo 1929!" B/w, 10x8. 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. Defects from original negative have reproduced at background. Fine condition.
