JOHN GIELGUD (1904-2000) was born a generation before the other three. He performed on Broadway and London stages for many years, eventually becoming an accomplished theatre director as well. He was the fourth person to win at least one individual Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony award. ALEC GUINNESS (1914-2000), much like Gielgud, earned acclaim on the stage and transitioned to film and television right after WWII. One of his most famous screen roles is that of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first trilogy of Star Wars films. He also starred alongside Peter O'Toole in the groundbreaking film Lawrence of Arabia (1962). ERNEST BORGNINE (1917-2012) was primarily a screen actor. His credits include The Dirty Dozen (1967) and The Wild Bunch (1969). Borgnine rarely played a lead, but made a mark in the cinema and television industries. CHARLTON HESTON (1923-2008) starred in The Ten Commandments (1956), Touch of Evil (1958), and Planet of the Apes (1968), all iconic films that influenced moviemaking. His chiseled features made him the perfect for any adventure film. Four Items. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 30x26¼
