MICHAEL REDGRAVE and HERBERT LOM The renowned actors sign opposite sides of a 6x4½ album leaf Autograph Note signed: "Best wishes to Bill/Michael Redgrave" and on verso "Sincerely/Herbert Lom" in blue ink, 6x4½ album leaf. MICHAEL REDGRAVE (1908-1985) was born in Bristol, England and was a Tony and Oscar-nominated English actor of stage, film and TV. Redgrave was a high school teacher before he began acting. He made his London debut in 1936 with Love Labour's Lost and his Broadway debut in 1948 in the title role of MacBeth. Redgrave broke into films with an unaccredited role in Alfred Hitchcock's The Secret Agent the year he made his London debut and found stardom with another Hitchcock movie, The Lady Vanishes, two years later. Redgrave went on to act in over 70 movies and TV shows. Most of these were British productions, including a role as Dr. Barnes Wallis, designer of the hydroplaning bombs in the popular The Dam Busters (1955). Redgrave's attempts to break into Hollywood with Mourning Becomes Electra (1947) was unsuccessful, although he did earn an Oscar nomination out of it. He settled into character roles and starring on stage after The Dam Busters, earning a Tony for his role as Hector in Tiger at the Gates. Redgrave also wrote the acting textbook The Actor's Ways and Means, the novel The Mountebank's Tale and two autobiographies. He was knighted in 1959. Czech stage actor HERBERT LOM (1917-2012) moved to England in1938. He was cast twice as Napoleon in The Young Mr. Pitt, (1942); War and Peace (1956). Other strong roles included Captain Nemo in The Mysterious Island (1961), Moslem leader Ben Yussuf in El Cid (1961), and the title role in The Phantom of the Opera (1962). He could play sinister villains like he did in Night and the City (1960) or comedy roles, as in the Pink Panther movies (as Peter Sellers' long-suffering boss), beginning with A Shot in the Dark (1964). Another very important role was the one he had in Ladykillers. Herbert Lom was noted for a precise, elegant pronunciation of English.Binding holes at left margin. Lightly toned at edges.
