Hungarian-born stage and screen actor PAUL LUKAS (1895-1971), born Pál Lukács, won the 1943 Academy Award for Best Actor for Watch on The Rhine, a role he reprised from the 1941 Broadway run of Lillian Hellman's play. Lukas, who trained for the stage at the Hungarian Actors Academy became a popular star in Europe before being brought to the U.S. by Adolph Zukor in 1927. Beginning in 1928, Lukas appeared in a number of feature films, including City Streets (1931), Little Women (1933), Dodsworth (1936), 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), Tender is the Night (1961), The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (1962) and Lord Jim (1965). He also made TV movies, appeared in a number of early TV anthologies, such as Studio One (1949), The United States Steel Hour (1955) and Playhouse 90, and was a guest star on several TV series, including The F.B.I. (1966, 1967), The Name of the Game (1968) and It Takes a Thief (1969). The ultimate character actor, with expertise in a limitless variety of foreign dialects,J. CARROL NAISH (1897-1973), born Joseph Patrick Carrol Naish, was seen in over 175 films as a Chinese, Japanese, Spanish, French, South Seas islander, Portuguese, Italian, German and Native American (title role in Sitting Bull). Ironically, Naish, who was descended from a highly respected family of Irish politicians and civil servants, never portrayed an Irishman during his long career. On television, he played the title role in 39 episodes of The New Adventures of Charlie Chan (1957). Naish was nominated for two Best Supporting Actor Academy Awards: Sahara (Italian POW) and A Medal for Benny (Mexican father of a deceased war hero). English-born actor CRAUFORD KENT (1881-1953) appeared in over 100 films between 1915 and 1952. He had some major, even starring roles in the silent era, including Sorrows of Happiness (as David Garrick, 1916) and Silas Marner (in the title role, 1922). With the arriving of talking films, he played mostly small and often un-credited roles in many well-known movies, including The Invisible Man, Naughty Marietta, Little Miss Marker, A Yank in the R.A.F. and Four Jills in a Jeep. He appeared in several Errol Flynn vehicles, including The Charge of the Light Brigade, The Adventures of Robin Hood and The Sea Hawk. Toned and creased. Corners worn. Mounting residue on verso.
