Autograph Note Signed: "To Kayo/Best Wishes/Michael/Redgrave", 4¼x2¾ with color 1½x2¾ newspaper photograph attached at left (two surfaces). Michael Redgrave (1908-1985, born in Bristol, England) 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. Lightly worn at corners. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
