Balladeer, pianist and bandleader NAT KING COLE (1917-1965), born Nathaniel Adams Cole, was second only to Frank Sinatra during his generation, charting over 100 singles, including his No.1 hit, "Ramblin' Rose", and more than two dozen albums. Cole, who led the successful Nat King Cole and the Nat Cole Trio from 1939-1951, recorded, toured internationally, was a fixture on radio and television shows, including his own The Nat King Cole Show (1956-1957 on NBC), and appeared in films. Cole was awarded a Grammy Award in 1959 for Midnight Flyer, and in 1991, 26 years after his death, he was awarded a second Grammy Award, posthumously, for Record of the Year for his recording of "Unforgettable", which was re-recorded in 1991 with his daughter, Natalie, who was 16 when he died. KIRK DOUGLAS, born Issur Danielovitch in 1916, was considered by many to be the epitome of the Hollywood hard man. Douglas, who made his film debut in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers in 1946, received his first Academy Award nomination for Champion three years later. He received two other Oscar nominations, for The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) and Lust for Life (1956), both directed by Vincente Minnelli, and also appeared in Spartacus (1960), Lonely Are the Brave (1962), The List of Adrian Messenger (1963), Seven Days in May (1964), In Harm's Way (1965), numerous other feature and made for television movies. In addition to his film work, which was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the American Film Institute in 1991 and an honorary Oscar by the Academy in 1995, Douglas has published two novels and an autobiography, The Ragman's Son (1988). Although he continued to appear in films, by the 1980s, Douglas began volunteering much of his time to civic affairs. Since 1963, he has worked as a Goodwill Ambassador and, in 1981, his many contributions earned him the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award given in the U.S. Names hand printed (unknown hand) beneath signatures. Lightly creased. Shaded at upper margin. Soiled on verso. Overall, fine condition.
