Max Von Sydow (1929-2020), made his film debut in 1949 and has since starred in a number of foreign and U.S. (from 1965) films. His credits include The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), Hawaii (1966), Made in Sweden (1969), The Exorcist (1973), Steppenwolf (1974), Three Days of the Condor (1975), Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977), Flash Gordon (1980), Conan the Barbarian (1982), Never Say Never Again (1983), Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), Awakenings (1990), What Dreams May Come (1998), Snow Falling on Cedars (1999), Minority Report (2002) and Heidi (2005). Von Sydow has also appeared in several made-for-TV movies, including The Diary of Anne Frank (1967), and miniseries, such as Quo Vadis? (1985) and Christopher Columbus (1985). Recent performances include a Catholic cardinal in The Tudors (2009) and "The Renter" in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011). The movie he was preparing to film when he wrote this letter was Le Cercle des Passions (1983), set in the locations he mentions. Actor Werner Klemperer (1920-2000) suppressed his German accent to play an all-American character role as the timorous press agent in the 1957 film, Kiss Them for Me. The capture of fugitive Nazi official Adolph Eichmann in 1960 sparked a renewal of interest in war films, and soon Klemperer found himself playing Eichmann (whom he vaguely resembled) in the 1961 quickie, Operation Eichmann. He also essayed a suitably slimy role as a former Nazi jurist on trial for war crimes in 1961's Judgment at Nuremberg. Try though he might to break free of the stereotype, Klemperer was stuck in Teutonic roles, so he resigned himself to re-cultivating his German accent. He worked steadily throughout the 1960s until he found fame on the small screen as the heel-clicking, impervious (and incredibly stupid) Colonel Klink. This photograph is from the collection of Francis and Violet Zane, Hawaaii natives who moved to California in the 1920's. Francis Zane had a job at the historic Curran Theater and the San Francisco Opera House, which is where he began his massive collection, with photographs and materials ranging from the 1920's to 1960's. The location and luck of his occupation would land him smack dab in the middle of the celebrity world, allowing him to capture some of the most unique and interesting pieces of Hollywood History. Andersson (1935-2019) was a Swedish stage, movie and TV actress who appeared in many of director Ignmar Bergman's films. Andersson was an actress with the Royal Theatre of Stockholm when Bergman discovered her when she was 17. Andersson already had a few movie appearances to her credit before Bergman tested her in a TV commercial, then gave her a small role in Smiles of a Summer Night (1955). She went on to play breezy roles that lightened heavy Bergman fare like The Seventh Seal (1957) and Wild Strawberries (1957) before getting her first important dramatic role, as the neurotic, unwed mother-to-be Hjördis Petterson in Bergman's Brink of Life (1958), which earned her a Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival. Her American films, including Duel at Diablo (1966), I Never Promised You a Rose Garden (1977) and Airport 79: The Concorde (1979). Dame Eileen Atkins (b.1934) the actress and screen writer has been in the industry since 1953. She has received multiple awards for her skills including BAFTA, three Olivier's and an Emmy. Along with her acting she was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire and in 2001 appointed Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. She has been in numerous stage plays, TV series and film appearances. Atkins was inducted into the American Theatre Hall of Fame in 1998. Lightly worn and toned. Minor ink smears in Atkins (fully legible). Otherwise, fine condition.
