Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Richard with/best regards/Paul Henreid", "Bette Davis". B/w 8x10. Movie still from Now Voyager (1942). Screen legend BETTE DAVIS (1908-1989, born Ruth Elizabeth Davis in Lowell, Massachusetts) has over 120 movies and TV shows to her credit, beginning in 1931 with the female lead in Bad Sister. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards for Best Actress, Davis won in 1936 for her role as Joyce Heath in Dangerous and in 1939 for portraying Julie Marsden in Jezebel. She was also nominated for her roles as Mildred Rogers in Of Human Bondage (1934), Judy Traherne in Dark Victory (1939), Leslie Crosbie in The Letter (1940), Regina Giddens in The Little Foxes (1941), Charlotte Vale in Now, Voyager, Fanny Trellis Skeffington in Mr. Skeffington (1944), Margo Channing in All About Eve (1950), Margaret Elliot in The Star (1952) and Jane Hudson in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962). Born in Trieste (now in Italy, then in the Austrian empire), PAUL HENREID (1908-1992) was originally cast in supporting roles, often as Germanic villains. After 1940, when he moved to Hollywood and became a US citizen, Henreid began to get starring roles. These included Now Voyager and Of Human Bondage (1946, not the version with Davis). But his most famous role was that of resistance leader Viktor Lazslo, Humphrey Bogart's rival for the affections of Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca (1942). Henreid could also swashbuckle, as in Buccaneers (1950). From the 1950s onward, Henreid focused on directing films (Dead Ringer, 1964) and TV episodes (Alfred Hitchcock Presents). Now Voyager cast Davis as a dowdy wallflower gradually transformed into a glamorous woman. It yielded a famous and oft-parodied visual image, Henreid lighting two cigarettes in his mouth and handing one to Davis; and also one of the great closing movie lines, spoken by Davis when Henreid can't get free from his wife: "Don't ask for the moon; we have the stars." Fine condition.
