The Hollies: Early Autographs on Polydor Postcard – col8442

The Hollies: Polydor Promotion Postcard for “ Another Night “.

Signed by : Tony Hicks ( guitar, vocals ) Bobby Elliot ( drums ) Allen Clarke ( guitar, vocals ) Bernie Calvert ( bass ).

By 1965 The Hollies were established as one of Britain’s pre-eminent singles bands, and they enjoyed huge chart success in many countries in the mid-Sixties, releasing a string of classic harmony-pop hits including “Bus Stop”, “I’m Alive”, “Stop, Stop Stop”, “Carrie Anne”, “On A Carousel” and “Look Through Any Window”. Drummer Bobby Elliot is also considered by many to be one of England’s best drummers; together with longtime bassist Bernie Calvert, the Hollies enjoyed a solid, almost jazz-oriented backbeat. Tony Hicks and Graham Nash shared the guitar spotlight, while frontman Allan Clarke sang in his distinctive nasal tenor.

The item comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Katherine Hepburn portrait-photo, hand-signed.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Katharine Houghton Hepburn (1907 –2003) was an American actress of film, stage, and television. After a few early film successes, including her first Academy Award, for Morning Glory, Hepburn endured a string of flops, which led to her being voted “box office poison”.

Throughout her six-decade career, Hepburn co-starred with screen legends including Cary Grant (Bringing Up Baby, Holiday, The Philadelphia Story), Humphrey Bogart (The African Queen), John Wayne (Rooster Cogburn), Laurence Olivier (Love Among the Ruins) and Henry Fonda (On Golden Pond). Her most successful pairing was with Spencer Tracy, with whom she made a string of hit pictures, starting with 1942’s Woman of the Year. The last of their nine films together was Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967), which was completed shortly before Tracy’s death.

Hepburn holds the record for the most Best Actress Oscar wins with four out of 12 nominations. She won an Emmy Award in 1976 for her lead role in Love Among the Ruins, and was nominated for four other Emmys, two Tony Awards and eight Golden Globes. In 1999, she was ranked by the American Film Institute as the greatest female star in the history of American cinema.

Jules Massenet Autograph. Portrait postcard (Photo Boyer, Paris) with keys at upper left, signed Wien 24 May 1902.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Jules Emile Frederic Massenet (1842 –1912) was a French composer best known for his operas. His compositions were very popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and he ranks as one of the greatest melodists of his era. Soon after his death, Massenet’s style went out of fashion, and many of his operas fell into almost total oblivion. Apart from Manon and Werther, his works were rarely performed. However, since the mid-1970s, many operas of his such as Thaïs and Esclarmonde have undergone periodic revivals.

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Autograph on early Ross Postcard. CoA – col8149

Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Autograph on early Ross Postcard. CoA – col8149: “Young Douglas Fairbanks Jr. on b/w photo, issued by the German Ross Verlag.

Certificate of Authenticity. Corners slightly rounded otherwise fine.

American actor Douglas Fairbanks Jr. was the son of film star Douglas Fairbanks Sr. Fairbanks Jr. He made his acting debut in 1923’s Stephen Steps Out. Before he was 20 he’d written an amusing article about the Hollywood scene for Vanity Fair magazine. In 1927, Fairbanks appeared in a stage play and in the early 1930s he married Joan Crawford.

Fairbanks had his best role in 1937’s The Prisoner of Zenda, in which he was alternately charming and cold-blooded as the villainous Rupert of Hentzau. Upon his father’s death in 1939, Fairbanks began to extend his activities into politics and service to his country. He helped to organize the Hollywood branch of the William Allen White Committee, designed to aid the allied cause in the European war. In 1942 he was chief officer of Special Operations, and in 1943 participated in the allied invasion of Sicily and Elba. Fairbanks worked his way up from Navy lieutenant to commander and finally, in 1954 to captain.

Fairbanks was back before the cameras in 1947 with Sinbad the Sailor. Out of films as an actor by 1951 (except for a welcome return in 1981’s Ghost Story), Fairbanks concentrated on the production end for the next decade.

Fairbanks, Jr. died on May 7, 2000, of natural causes.
