James David Graham Niven ( 1910 -1983), known as David Niven, was an English actor and novelist, best known for his roles as Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days and Sir Charles Litton, a.k.a. “the Phantom,” in The Pink Panther.

In 1967, he appeared as one of seven incarnations of “007” in the James Bond spoof Casino Royale. In fact, Niven had been Bond creator Ian Fleming’s first choice to play Bond in Dr. No. Casino Royale co-producer Charles K. Feldman said later that Fleming had written the book with Niven in mind, and therefore had sent a copy to Niven.

Niven was the only James Bond actor mentioned by name in the text of Fleming’s novels.

Fritz Wunderlich autograph

 

Legendary tenor Fritz Wunderlich as Tamino. Photo by Fayer, hand-signed by Fritz Wunderlich with a quote of The Magic Flute: Ach wie herrlich. Herzlich Fritz Wunderlich.

The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Size: 9 x 14 c. Good condition.

Friedrich “Fritz” Karl Otto Wunderlich (1930 – 1966) was a German lyric tenor, famed for his singing of the Mozart repertory and various lieder. He died in an accident when he was only 35.

Wunderlich achieved the highest distinction within the German repertory. Of special importance is a recording of Mozart’s The Magic Flute, conducted by Karl Böhm, in which Wunderlich gave a critically acclaimed performance as Prince Tamino, opposite baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in the role of Papageno. There is also a live performance of The Magic Flute recorded in 1960 at the Salzburg festival, and several recordings as Belmonte in Die Entführung aus dem Serail. Recordings also exist of lesser-known Mozart operas such as Zaide and La Finta Giardiniera.

Wunderlich’s crystal-clear voice, exquisite diction, and intelligent, restrained interpretation also led him to impressive renditions of the lieder cycles of Schubert and Schumann with pianist Hubert Giesen. His famous recording of Schumann’s Dichterliebe remains a gold standard of this genre. Many tenors since have emulated Wunderlich’s interpretation of this cycle.

Jane Russell is an American film actress and was one of Hollywood’s leading sex symbols in the 1940s and 1950s.

In 1940, Russell was signed to a seven-year contract by film mogul Howard Hughes and made her motion picture debut in The Outlaw (1943), a story about Billy the Kid that went to great lengths to showcase her voluptuous figure. Although the movie was completed in 1941, it was released for a limited showing two years later. There were problems with the censorship of the production code over the way her ample cleavage was displayed. When the movie was finally passed, it had a general release in 1946. During that time, she was kept busy doing publicity and became known nationally.

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.

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.
