Signed by the Welsh actor on an un-mailed postcard
Autograph Sentiment: "Best Wishes/Stanley Baker", 5½x3½. Written on verso of an un-mailed postcard. Welsh actor Sir Stanley Baker (1928-1976) appeared in films from 1949, with some of his best known roles coming late in his career. These included the role of Lt. Chard in Zulu (with a young Michael Caine, 1964) and Joseph Losey's Accident (1967). However, Baker reportedly turned down the starring role in Dr. No, the part which made a star of Sean Connery. Baker, an admirer of the real Lieutenant Chard, acquired Chard's Victoria Cross and Zulu War Medal in 1972. One month before his death, Baker was knighted by his friend Prime Minister Harold, on what became known as the "Lavender List" of very controversial knighthoods bestowed by Wilson as he left office. Light adhesive residue on verso. Fine condition.
