ROLAND CULVER and GEORGE DOONAN. Signature: "Roland Culver/1941" and, on verso, "Best Wishes/Doris Bentley" and "Smatter withchoo/Geo. Doonan" and one unidentified signer, 6½x5¼ album leaf. Newspaper photograph, b/w, 1¼x2 of unidentified signer affixed at upper right margin of verso. Pencil notes (unknown hand) to left of photo: "(The Great Little Comedian)". English actor ROLAND CULVER (1900-1984) appeared in films for over 50 years, usually in supporting roles. In 1941, the year he signed this leaf, Culver appeared in three films: One of Our Aircraft is Missing, This is England and Quiet Wedding. His film credits also include The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943), Dead of Night (1945), To Each His Own (1946) and The Magic Box (1951). British actor GEORGE DOONAN (1897-1973) appeared in several British "shorts" of the 1940s and in The Entertainer (1960) and Shadow of the Cat (1961). He is the father of actors Patric and Tony Doonan. We were unable to verify the identities of Doris Bentley and the comedian, whose first name is Ivor. He is not, however, today's British Jewish comedian Ivor Dembina, who has successfully toured with the one-man shows, SadoJudiasm and This is Not a Subject for Comedy, as this leaf was signed circa 1941. Lightly creased at lower right blank corner. Slightly shaded. Irregular right edge from removal from bound book. Overall, fine condition.
