Autographed book The Rothschilds, acquired from the estate of Van Johnson
Book signed: "Van/Johnson", signed in red felt marker. 305 pages. 5½x8½, hardcover. The Rothschilds © 1961 by Frederic Morton. Johnson (1916-2008, born Charles Van Johnson in Newport, Rhode Island) emerged as a film star during World War II, later making a good transition from leading man to character roles. His prominent films include Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1943), The Caine Mutiny (1954), Divorce, American Style (1967) and The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985). Johnson could also sing, permitting him to star in the film version of Brigadoon (1954) and on many stages as The Music Man. Often cast in war movies, as in Battleground (1949), he could also play romantic leads, as he did opposite such stars as Janet Leigh, Judy Garland, Esther Williams, June Allyson and Deborah Kerr. This book is from Van Johnson's estate. Corners worn. Soiled and toned. Water damage at right edge causing stains on all pages and some pages stuck together. Stain across signature. Top right corner of signature page missing and pencil notation unknown hand. Top right portion of dust cover torn away.
