BURGESS MEREDITH and MARGO Shown together in movie still from Winterset, inscribed in person to collector Saul Goodman. They had played the same roles on Broadway, but Hollywood changed the ending to let the couple survive. Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Saul/Good wishes/Burgess Meredith", "To Saul/Margo". B/w, 8x10. Collector's ink stamp on verso dates signature: September 26, 1936.BURGESS MEREDITH (1907-1997), who made his stage debut in 1929 and his film debut in 1936 (Winterset, shown here) reprising his stage role), was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actor for The Day of the Locust (1975) and Rocky (1976). Meredith appeared in feature films as both a character and lead actor, and his credits include Of Mice and Men (1939), Advise and Consent (1962), In Harm's Way (1965), Hurry Sundown (1967), Foul Play (1978), Grumpy Old Men (1993) and its sequel, Grumpier Old Men (1995). He was also a frequent guest TV performer, appearing in a number of made-for-television movies and on Playhouse 90 (1957), The Twilight Zone (1959, 1961, 1963), Bonanza (1967), The Monkees (1968) and Batman, in one of his most memorable roles, "The Penguin" (series and film, 1966). Mexican-born actress and dancer MARGO (1917-1985, born Maria Marguerita Guadalupe) was a character actress with major roles in several films, including Lost Horizon (1937), Viva, Zapata! (1952) and I'll Cry Tomorrow (1955). Married first to Francis Lederer, she was married to another actor, Eddie Albert, from 1945 until her death. Meredith and Margo had both appeared in the Broadway version of Winterset (a 1934 play by Sherwood Anderson), and both reprised their roles in the film, but with an important differences: their characters, killed by gangsters on stage, survived the movie for a happy ending. Saul Goodman (1919-2003), a New York business man by day, pursued his love of film and theatre in the evening, making friends with many celebrities. While other autograph seekers offered album leaves, Goodman presented stars with snazzy photographs, a rarity then, to sign in fountain pen. Corners worn and creased. Lightly toned around edges. Ink stamp on verso. Otherwise, Fine condition.
