Stage, screen and television actor Adolphe Menjou (1890-1963) was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor for The Front Page (1930-1931). Known for his waxed black mustache and stylish wardrobe, he usually appeared as a dapper man-of-the world in more than 100 films, including A Woman of Paris (1923), Morocco (1930), Little Miss Marker (1934), Stage Door (1937), A Star is Born (1937) and Paths of Glory (1957). His other films include A Farewell to Arms (1932) and Pollyanna (1960), and Menjou also hosted several TV series, including My Favorite Story (1953-1954) and Target. His 1948 autobiography was appropriately titled, It Took Nine Tailors. American stage and screen actress Verree Teasdale (1897-1987) made a total of 13 Broadway appearances between 1924 and 1932. Her role in The Constant Wife (1926-27), co-starring opposite Ethel Barrymore, got her a movie contract, and she appeared in almost 30 films between 1929 and 1941, usually playing bored society wives, scheming lovers and second leads in comedies. In the film version of the Shakespeare film promoted here, Teasdale played Amazon Queen Hippolyta, in a Hollywood star-studded cast which included such surprising Shakespeareans as Jimmy Cagney and Mickey Rooney. Menjou and Teasdale were married from 1935 until his death. They co-hosted a syndicated radio program in the 1940s and early fifties. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners worn and creased. Lightly toned around edges. Otherwise, Fine condition.
