VICTOR MATURE and MAXWELL REED
Both actors sign an invitation for the premier of The Robe.
Invitation signed: "V Mature" and "Maxwell Reed" in pencil on verso, 6½x4¾. Invitation for the premier of The Robe. In full: "Spyros P. Skouras/Chairman of 20th Century-Fox Film Company/and the/Directors of the J. Arthur Rank Organisation/request the pleasure of your company at the/Premiere of the First Motion Picture in/CinemaScope/Lloyd C.

Mature starred as Demetrius in The Robe. In 1953, he was also seen on the big screen in The Glory Brigade, Affair With a Stranger and The Veils of Bagdad. Handsome leading man VICTOR MATURE (1913-1999), who was known as "Beautiful Hunk of Man" or simply "The Hunk", made his film debut in 1939 in The Housekeeper's Daughter. He is best known for his roles in biblical or epic films, such as Samson and Delilah (1949), The Robe (1953), Demetrius and the Gladiators (1954) and The Egyptian (1954), although he showed his range with acclaimed performances in such films as My Darling Clementine (1946) and Kiss of Death (1947). After making the made-for-TV movie, Samson and Delilah (a remake of his 1949 feature film), Mature retired from acting. Irish-born actor MAXWELL REED (1919-1974) appeared in four films in 1953: Capitan Fantasma, Marilyn, Sea Devils and The Square Ring. Reed, who made his feature film debut in 1946, also appeared on several television series through 1968. The first husband of actress Joan Collins (1952-1956), Reed was known for being abusive to her. Mid-vertical fold, not at signatures. Lightly creased at upper left blank corner. Slightly soiled on front and verso. Overall, fine condition.
