THE DETECTIVE MOVIE CAST: FRANK SINATRA and JACQUELINE BISSET
Both sign a still from the 1968 film, showing both peering into a room. Bisset has also inscribed it.
Photograph signed: "Frank Sinatra" and "To George/Jacqueline Bisset". B/w, 8x10. Movie still from the 1968 crime drama, The Detective. Based on the Roderick Thorpe novel, a police detective (Sinatra) investigates the murder of a homosexual man and discovers links to official corruption in New York City. The multi-talented actor and singer won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1953 (as Maggio in From Here to Eternity) and Grammy Awards for Best Pop Vocal in 1959 ("Come Dance With Me"), 1965 ("It Was a Very Good Year") and 1966 ("Strangers in the Night"). After being with the Harry James Orchestra and Tommy Dorsey, SINATRA struck out on his own, becoming the hero of a generation of "bobby-soxers". "Old Blue Eyes" was popular in venues from casinos to concert halls, and his renditions of such tunes as "My Way" and "New York, New York" are inimitable classics. "The Chairman of the Board" was equally well-known for his philanthropies. He was awarded the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1970. Originally cast in sexpot roles in films such as Casino Royale (1967), British actress BISSET later developed into a top-notch actress, as evidenced by her performances in The Grasshopper (1969) and The Thief Who Came to Dinner (1972). She came to so despise her earlier sexpot image that she insisted that no still photos of her wet T-shirt scenes in The Deep (1977) be reproduced for publication. That year, Newsweek magazine voted her "the most beautiful film actress of all time." In 1978, she played another famous Jackie in The Greek Tycoon, an à clef version of the Aristotle Onassis saga. A more mature but no less dazzlingly beautiful Bisset was later seen in a kinky secondary role in Zalman King's Wild Orchid (1990). The actress received critical acclaim in 2001 for her portrayal of a dying woman's search for the daughter she never knew in Christopher Munch's drama The Sleepy Time Gal. Lightly creased. Collector's stamp on verso (no show-through). Fine condition.
