Glenn Ford, Nina Foch, and James Whitmore sign a lobby card advertising their movie The Undercover Man.
Lobby Card signed: "Glenn Ford", "Nina Foch" and "James Whitmore". Color, 14x11. Movie still from the crime thriller, ©1949, Columbia Pictures Corp, numbered 49/183. Assigned to put an end to the activities of a powerful crime lord, Frank Warren (Ford) poses as a criminal to seek out information. Foch is the nominal female lead, while various friends and foes are portrayed by others, notably Whitmore. After making his screen debut in 20th Century-Fox's Heaven With a Barbed Wire Fence (1939), GLENN FORD (1916-2006) played diverse roles, including dark characters (The Blackboard Jungle and Ransom, both released in 1955), romantic leading men (Teahouse of the August Moon, 1956; The Gazebo, 1959) and rugged western heroes (The Desperados, 1943; The Sheepman, 1958; Cimarron, 1960). In 1958, Ford was voted the number one male box-office attraction, and he was able to extend his popularity long after the studio system that "created" him had collapsed. Born in Holland, raised in New York City, NINA FOCH trained as a classical pianist before turning to acting. With prominent roles in films for over 50 years, from Return of the Vampire (1943) to Hush (1998), Foch got her Academy Award nomination (for Best Supporting Actress) early (Executive Suite, 1954). A respected drama coach, she has made dozens of guest appearances on TV dramas over half a century. In 1949, JAMES WHITMORE appeared in Battleground and his performance as a battle-scarred sergeant earned him his first Oscar nomination. He specialized in giving tour de force solo performances on stage, screen, and television, notably with his Oscar-nominated solo turn as President Truman in Give 'Em Hell Harry! Though primarily a supporting player, Whitmore occasionally played leads, notably in films like Them! (1954) and Black Like Me (1964). In addition to his film and stage work, Whitmore also performed on television as a guest star and as the star of the series The Law and Mr. Jones (1960-1962). Between 1972 and 1974, Whitmore co-starred on the series Temperatures Rising. During the '80s, Whitmore often appeared in television miniseries. His career slowed dramatically in the '90s, though in 1994, he offered a memorable performance as an old lifer who finds himself unable to cope outside of prison in The Shawshank Redemption. Creased. Overall, fine condition.
