ROBERT BRUCE MANTELL (1854-1928) was a Scottish-born American actor famed for his Shakespearean roles, especially King Lear. He made his Broadway debut in Fedora, opposite Fanny Davenport, in 1883, but concentrated on Shakespeare in later years. At age 61, he made his first silent film in 1915. All his films have been lost except his last one, Under the Red Robe (1923). French organist and composer ALEXANDRE GUILMANT (1837-1911), 30 years a church organist in Paris, made several US tours, performing frequently on the famed St Louis exposition organ. His own compositions were exclusively written for the organ. Guilmant also taught music at the Schola Cantorum and the Paris Conservatory. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
