ALEC GUINNESS. Photograph signed: "Alec Guinness". B/w, 8x10.

The film also starred Sophia Lauren, Stephen Boyd, James Mason and Christopher Plummer and co-starred John Ireland, Fel Ferrer, Omar Sharif and Anthony Quayle. 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, 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). Minor surface creases and scratches (not evident head on). Ink scribbles on verso (no show through). Poor contrast.
