The recipient of a host of awards, Jackson has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The arrival of London-born RODDY MCDOWALL (1928-1998) in Hollywood came when he tested for the juvenile lead in Fox's How Green Was My Valley (1941), winning both the role and a long contract. McDowall's first adult acting assignment was as Malcolm in Orson Welles' 1948 film version of Macbeth. The actor spent the better part of the early 1960s playing Octavian in the mammoth production Cleopatra, co-starring with longtime friend Elizabeth Taylor. An accomplished photographer, McDowall was honored by having his photos of Taylor and other celebrities frequently published in the leading magazines of the era. McDowall's most frequent assignments between 1968 and 1975 found him in elaborate simian makeup in the Planet of the Apes theatrical films and TV series. Shortly before his death, the Academy of Motion Pictures named its photo archive after him. Lightly creased, usual black marks from photocopying. Three file holes at left margin. Mat, which is lightly soiled, is creased at corners. Fine condition. Matted, not in Gallery of History style. Not reviewed by us for conservation integrity. "As is" matting purchase.
