THE TOY WIFE MOVIE CAST: ROBERT YOUNG and LUISE RAINER
The two stars pen their names on this color publicity photo for The Toy Wife (1938)
Printed Photograph signed in Ink: "Robert Young", and "Luise Rainer", in black ink, color, 10x8. Publicity photograph for the 1938 film The Toy Wife. Perhaps best known as Jim Anderson on Father Knows Best (television, 1954-1960; radio 1949-1954) and the title practitioner on television's Marcus Welby, M.D. (1969-1976), Young (1907-1998) also appeared in over 100 films. In some screen roles, such as the cold-blooded spy in Hitchcock's Secret Agent (1936) and the no-good philanderer in They Won't Believe Me (1947), Young showed an acting range far wider than his likeable and wholesome TV characters. Luise Rainer (1910-2014) was awarded successiveBest Actress Academy Awards for The Great Ziegfeld (1936, which also earned her the moniker "The Viennese Teardrop") and The Good Earth (1937). She was the first woman to win two Oscars, and the first actor to win two consecutive ones. She later considered the back-to-back Oscar wins a misfortune, raising expectations too high, and she is considered by many the most glaring example of the "Oscar jinx." She moved from the U.S. to England in the early 1940s and largely retired from film. Her patron, producer Irving Thalberg had died, and MGM head Louis B. Mayer did not like her. She reappeared years later on TV, even starring in an episode of The Love Boat (1984), and played a grandmother in the 1997 film The Gambler. Fine condition.
