B/w, 8x10 overall, 7¼x9½ image, one surface. Preston (1918-1987), born Robert Preston Meservey, had already made nearly 40 films from 1938, playing second leads in most, when he became a big star of Broadway musicals. Preston won Tony Awards for Best Actor (Musical) for The Music Man (1958), a role he repeated in the hit film four years later, and for I Do! I Do! (1966), and he was nominated in the same category in 1975 for Mack & Mabel. Preston was also nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Awardfor Victor/Victoria (1982). Modern audiences may know him best from his final movie appearance, as a fast-talking alien con man in The Last Starfighter (1984). Lightly toned, cracked, creased and bowed. Pen skipped while writing signature, which has poor adhesion but is legible. Light tear at top edge. Lightly chipping along cracks. Otherwise in fine condition.
