In 1931, Raymond Massey (1896-1983) starred in his first talking picture as Sherlock Holmes in The Speckled Band. He divided his time between stage and screen, offering excellent performances in major motion-picture efforts (The Scarlet Pimpernal, 1935 and Things to Come, 1936). Massey's appearance in Abe Lincoln in Illinois was his most famous role; he appeared in the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway production and then repeated his Lincoln characterization in this film version, earning an Academy Award nomination as Best Actor. Twenty-two years later, he played a cameo as Honest Abe in How the West Was Won (1962). On television, Massey hosted the 1955 syndicated anthology I Spy, and more memorably was Dr. Gillespie in the weekly series Dr. Kildare. Horizontal fold note near signature. Staple holes at upper blank margin, red pencil note (unknown hand) at lower blank margin. Fine condition.
