Johnny Cash Autograph, CoA

 

Johnny Cash portrait photo with authentic autograph.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

7,7 x 9,8 inches (19,4 x 25,5 cm), good condition.

John R. “Johnny” Cash (1932–2003) was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author who was considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.

Although he is primarily remembered as a country icon, his songs and sound spanned other genres including rock and roll and rockabilly—especially early in his career—and blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honor of induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

Rita Hayworth autograph on Columbia Film (Ufa/Film-Foto). Real Photo.

3,5 x 5,5 inches, good condition.

Rita Hayworth (1918–1987) was an American dancer and film actress who achieved fame during the 1940s as one of the era’s top stars.

Appearing first as Rita Cansino, she agreed to change her name to Rita Hayworth and her natural dark brown hair color to dark red to attract a greater range of roles. Her appeal led to her being featured on the cover of Life magazine five times, beginning in 1940.

Hayworth appeared in a total of 61 films over 37 years.

Oskar Werner Autograph and early Portrait Photo. CoA

Oskar Werner Autograph and Photo. CoA

Oskar Werner Autograph on album page 5.4 x 7.5 inches and b/w photo print with a portrait of the young Oskar Werner 7,1 x 9,4 inches. Both are in good condition. Perfect for display.

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.

Montgomery Clift Autograph on The Defector Photo, 1966. CoA

Montgomery Clift: Authentic autograph on larger display photo, signed in 1966, the year of his death.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

10 x 8 inches, very good condition.

Edward Montgomery (Monty) Clift (1920 –1966) was an American film and stage actor. The New York Times’ obituary noted his portrayal of “moody, sensitive young men”.

Clift starred in the ground-breaking 1950 docu-drama The Big Lift.

He often played outsiders and “victim-heroes”; examples include the social climber in George Stevens’s A Place in the Sun, the anguished Catholic priest in Hitchcock’s I Confess, the doomed regular soldier Robert E. Lee Prewitt in Fred Zinnemann’s From Here to Eternity, and the Jewish GI bullied by antisemites in Edward Dmytryk’s The Young Lions.

Later, after a car crash in 1956 that scarred Clift’s face, and alcohol and prescription drug abuse, he became erratic.
