Printed photograph signed in ink: "Warren Beatty", in black ink. B/w, 8x10. Shown in a publicity photograph for The Only Game in Town (1970). Captioned in lower margin. Actor Warren Beatty, born Henry Warren Beaty in 1937, made his auspicious film debut in Splendor in the Grass (1961), after which he spent a number of years being written off by the more narrow-minded movie critics as a would-be Brando. Beatty took on his first film as producer/star in Bonnie and Clyde (1967), which turned into the most significant film of 1967 and propelled Beatty from a handsome, talented film star into a powerful filmmaker. In 1981, Beatty produced, directed, co-scripted and acted in Reds, a spectacular recounting of the Russian Revolution as seen through the eyes of American Communist John Reed. Reds failed to win the Best Picture Academy Award, though Beatty did pick up an Oscar as Best Director. Some of his other works include Ishtar, Dick Tracy (1991), Bugsy (1992) and Bulworth (1998). Beatty was honored with the Irving Thalberg Memorial Award in 2000, and he was a recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors in 2004. The brother of actress Shirley MacLaine, Beatty has been married to actress Annette Bening since 1992. He had previously lived with actress Julie Christie from 1967-1973. Corners creased. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Lightly toned at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
