Oskar Werner Autograph from Year of his Death 1984. CoA

Oskar Werner Autograph. Hand-signed Photo 1984, in the year of his death. CoA
Oskar Werner Autograph

Oskar Werner Autograph: Signed color photo (from an earlier photo), signed in 1984, the year of his death.

4 x 6 inches, good condition.

The autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Oskar Werner was 18 years old when he made his stage bow at the Burgtheater in Wien.
He was a lifelong pacifist, a pure, traditional mime, a gifted reciter.

“Werner’s definitive screen performance was the romantic intellectual Jules in Francois Truffaut’s Jules et Jim (1962), though it was his portrayal of the philosophical Dr. Schumann in Ship of Fools (1965) that earned the actor his only Oscar nomination.

His friendship with Truffaut soured after their second collaboration, Fahrenheit 451 (1967); exhibiting profound disillusionment, Truffaut complained (not without justification) that Werner had become a “cold” performer.

Oskar Werner died at the age of 62.
