WARNER BROS. PICTURES: MARIE WINDSOR, LAUREN BACALL, JANE POWELL, GILBERT ROLAND and LEW AYRESA group of actors and actresses sign this 6x4 photograph showing the Warner Bros. logo. Photograph signed: "Lauren Bacall", "Marie Windsor", "Lew Ayres", "Gilbert Roland" and "Jane Powell", in various inks, color, 6x4. When model LAUREN BACALL (1924-2014) graced the cover of "Harper's Bazaar" in 1943, Mrs. Howard Hawks was impressed with what would come to be known as "The Look" and she told her producer-director husband about the sultry beauty. From the time Bacall made her Hollywood debut in Hawks' To Have and Have Not (1944) with Humphrey Bogart, both film critics and moviegoers fell in love with the beauty with the throaty voice. Lauded as the most sensational newcomer of the year, Bacall found both fame and happiness, falling in love and marrying Bogie, with whom she would star in three more films. After his death in 1957, Bacall made Designing Women (1957) and The Gift of Love (1958), but virtually dropped out of sight until 1970, when she made a triumphant comeback in the stage production of Applause. Bacall's later films include Murder on the Orient Express (1974), The Shootist (1976) and The Fan (1981). The actress was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for The Mirror Has Two Faces (1996), winning a Golden Globe in the same category. Although MARIE WINDSOR (1919-2000) said her favorite films were Hellfire (1949), The Narrow Margin (1952) and The Killing (1956), the actress and expert horsewoman is best known for her roles in "B" Westerns in the 1940s. Her long list of feature films includes Song of the Thin Man (1947, her first featured role), The Fighting Kentuckian (1949), The Eddie Cantor Story (1953), Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy (1955), Cahill U.S. Marshall (1973), and Freaky Friday (1976). Windsor also appeared in a long list of TV series from 1952 (The Unexpected) to 1991 (Murder, She Wrote), making repeat guest-starring visits to such shows as Hawaiian Eye, Perry Mason, Adam-12, and Simon & Simon. Windsor served as adirector of the Screen Actors Guild for 25 years. LEW AYRES (1908-1996) starred opposite Greta Garbo in one of the last silent films, The Kiss (1929), and then starred in 1930's Oscar-winning talking film, All Quiet on the Western Front. A leading man through the 1940s, he earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actor in Johnny Belinda (1948). He also starred as Dr. Kildare in a series of feature films, but refused to play the role on TV because cigarettes were to be advertised on the program. Misidentified as a conscientious objector because of his desire to serve as a combat medic, Ayers was temporarily blacklisted in Hollywood during World War II. Ayers remained active in movie and TV character roles through the 1980s. GILBERT ROLAND (1905-1994) played dashing leading men in both silent and talking films - his movie career spanned half a century. Originally trained as a bullfighter, he was the only genuine Mexican to portray the Cisco Kid on screen (in eleven films). He received twoGolden Globe nominations as Best Supporting Actor, for The Bad and the Beautiful (1952) and Cheyenne Autumn (1964). Roland appeared in more than 100 films: The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) being the first, and Barbarosa (1982) being the last. Possessing a wide-ranging operatic singing voice, actress JANE POWELL (b. 1929) was a radio performer from childhood. She took dancing and acting lessons, then made her film debut at 15 in Song of the Open Road (1944). She is best known for her parts in film musicals of the early 1950s, including Royal Wedding (1951) and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954). Fine condition.
