Photograph inscribed and signed: "Best wishes/to Saul,/Alec Guinness". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature July 4, 1952. 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, 1980 and 1983). He played John LeCarré's crafty spymaster George Smiley in two BBC miniseries (1979, 1982) based on the novels Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and Smiley's People. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Scattered creases, surface marks and spots to emulsion. Otherwise, fine condition.
