English born actress Lynn Fontanne (1892-1983) was a Broadway star for nearly 50 years, beginning in 1910. She was married to her frequent co-star, American Alfred Lunt, from 1922 until his death in 1977. Although the Lunts scored Oscar nominations for the film version of their Broadway performance in The Guardsmen (1931), they generally shunned films in favor of live theater. The were co-recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom (1964) and Lifetime Achievement Tony awards (1970). In 1980, Lynne Fontanne accepted Kennedy Center honors on behalf of the "First Couple of the Theatre". Ten Chimneys, a complex of buildings built over two decades on land purchased by Alfred Lunt in 1914, was the couple's lifelong home, where they entertained many literary and entertainment luminaries. It is now a museum open to the public and housing a large collection of documents and memorabilia. Fine condition.
