Signatures from both actors on an album leaf
Autograph note signed: "To William Prince/My best wishes/Cedric Hardwicke" and, on verso, "'Professor'/Jimmy Edwards/T.I.F.H. 1949", 6x4½ album leaf. In 1948, Hardwicke starred in two feature films: Rope and I Remember Mama. In 1949, the year he signed this leaf, Edwards appeared in the British film, Helter Skelter. British actor Sir CEDRIC HARDWICKE (1883-1964), who was knighted for his acting in 1934, was called the finest actor in the world by playwright George Bernard Shaw. Hardwicke, who had appeared in a number of stage plays, including Shaw's Major Barbara, made his film debut in 1926 in Nelson and continued to make films through 1964, the year of his death. His long list of film credits include Les Miserables (1935), King Solomon's Mines (1937), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939), Wilson (1944), The Picture of Dorian Gray (1945), Around the World in 80 Days (1956), The Ten Commandments (1956) and The Pumpkin Eater (1964, his last film). British comedian/actor JIMMY EDWARDS (1920-1988), born James Keith O'Neill Edwards, was sometimes billed as "Professor Jimmy Edwards". Easily recognized by his trademark handle-bar mustache, which he first sported while flying for the RAF in WWII, Edwards appeared in music halls, on radio and television and in feature films. After making his film debut in 1948's Trouble in the Air, Edwards appeared in such films as Three Men in a Boat (1957), Bottoms Up (1960) and Lionheart (1968). He also guested on TV series and was honored on This Is Your Life in 1958. Show through of writing on verso touches the "Ha" of Hardwicke. Slightly soiled. Irregular left edge from removal from bound book, rounded at right corners. Overall, fine condition.
