RICHARD BURTON (1925-1984), a Welsh stage and screen actor with a magnificent voice, received seven Oscar nominations for My Cousin Rachel in 1952, The Robe in 1953, Becket in 1964, The Spy Who Came In From the Cold in 1965, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf in 1966, Anne of the Thousand Days in 1969 and Equus in 1977, with all but the first for Best Actor. Burton may be best remembered, however, for his tempestuous romances, movie pairings with Elizabeth Taylor, whom he met on the set of Cleopatra (1963), and four failed marriages, two of them to Taylor. He was born Richard Walter Jenkins, Jr., the 12th of a Welsh coal miner's 13 children, but changed his last name to that of Phillip Burton, who helped him get a scholarship to Oxford. He got his start on the stage in 1943, but had his career put on hold when he was drafted into the Royal Air Force in 1944. After his discharge, he had his first hit in 1949's The Lady's Not For Burning. He began making movies in Britain in 1949, with My Cousin Rachel as his first Hollywood role. Despite a crippled leg from a childhood polio infection, DORIS HART (1925-2015), became the United State's no. 1 women's tennis player and a multiple Grand Slam-winning tennis player, with singles championships at Wimbledon (1951), the U. S. Championships (1954-1955), the Australian Championships (1949) and the French Championships (1952) and runner-up finishes in 12 more tournaments between 1946 and 1953. In all, she has 35 Grand Slam championships or runner-up finishes in singles, women's doubles and mixed doubles. She retired in 1955 and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1969. MAUREEN CONNOLLY BRINKER (1934-1969) was an American tennis player and the first woman player to win all four Grand Slam championships in one calendar year (1953). Overall, she has a total of championships or runner-up finishes in 18 Grand Slam singles, women's doubles and mixed doubles tournaments, including singles championships at Wimbledon (1952-4), the U. S. Championships (1951-3), the Australian Championships (1953) and the French Championships (153, 1954). She was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1969. ALICE FAYE (1915-1998) was a chorus girl who rose to movie stardom in such films as In Old Chicago (1938), Rose of Washington Square (1939) and Tin Pan Alley (1940). She also co-starred with husband Phil Harris in a popular radio comedy series. Semi-retired thereafter, Faye remained popular on TV and in nightclub appearances. Comedian and bandleader PHIL HARRIS (1904-1995), a regular on Jack Benny's radio show (1936-1946), popularized the song That's What I Like About the South. Married to actress Alice Faye from 1941 until his death, he co-starred with her on another radio show (1948-1954), episodes of which show up frequently on radio tape and CD collections. Lightly toned, soiled and creased. Faye and Harris' signatures touch. Paper loss at left edge (does not touch signatures). Otherwise, fine condition.
