ALEC GUINNESS and JOHN JUSTIN
The two actors sign a 6¼x5¼ album leaf
Autograph Note signed: "Alec Guinness" and "To Jim Creale/With Best Wishes/John Justin", 6¼x5¼ album leaf. Unidentified signature on verso. Cast in Shakespearean roles in Sir John Gielgud's company (from 1934), British actor ALEC GUINNESS (1914-2000) appeared in the stage and screen versions of Dickens' Great Expectations (1939, 1946). He also portrayed eight members of one family in Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949). Winner of the Best Actor Academy Award for The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), the versatile Sir Alec later portrayed such figures as Arabian Prince Faisal, Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius, English King Charles I, Adolph Hitler and Sigmund Freud, not to mention Marley's Ghost. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Guinness found renewed popularity with his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first Star Wars film trilogy (1977, nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar; 1980 and 1983). British actor JOHN JUSTIN (1917-2002), born John Justinian de Ledesma, considered himself primarily a stage actor and played a number of seasons at Stratford, the Old Vic and Regent's Park open air theatre. In 1937, he made his film debut in Dark Journey, but he would become best known for his second film, The Thief of Baghdad, three years later. Justin, who took occasional film roles in addition to his stage appearances, made his last film, The Trenchcoat, in 1983. His other credits include The Man Who Loved Redheads (1955), Valentino (1977) and The Big Sleep (1978). Top edge ragged and frayed from previous binding. Lightly toned and creased. Pencil note (unknown hand) at top left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
