A child actress early in the silent era, stage and screen actress MADGE EVANS (1909-1981) starred in many B movies and in some time line films (Dinner at Eight, 1933; David Copperfield, 1935; Pennies from Heaven, 1936) and in five Broadway plays. She retired from films in 1939, after marrying Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, producer and director Sidney Kingsley, continuing her stage work until 1943. HENRY WILCOXON (1905-1984), born in the West Indies, began a long collaboration with Cecil B. DeMille when he portrayed Marc Antony in Cleopatrs (1934). A generation later, he both acted in - and produced - DeMille's The Ten Commandments. Other films starring Wilcoxon included The Last of the Mohicans (1936) and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1949). DOROTHY WILSON (1909-1998) was a stenographer at RKO Radio when she was discovered by a talent scout and cast in films of the 1930s, usually as a romantic interest. She made her debut as a college co-ed in The Age of Consent (1932). She starred opposite Will Rogers in In Old Kentucky (1935). After marrying Oscar-winning scriptwriter Lewis R. Foster, she retired from films. ERNEST COSSART (1876-1951) was often cast in American films in stereotypical English types, as a butler, for example. His major film roles included My American Wife (1936), Kitty Foyle (1940) and The Girl of the Limberlost (1945). Pencil numbering (unknown hand) of signatures). Lightly soiled.
