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.

Artist Hans Sussenbeck was designer for posters, postcards, magazines. Monarchist before WWII, politically right during the Nazi regime and awarded with States honors afterwards. German actor Emil Jannings made his professional stage debut at 18. In 1906 he was invited to join Max Reinhardt’s theater in Berlin.

In 1927 Paramount signed him and he moved to Hollywood. Jannings won the very first Best Actor Academy Award for his first two American films, The Last Command (1928) and The Way of All Flesh (1927). Because of his thick German accent, the advent of sound ended his American career. He returned to Germany in 1929.

When the Nazis came to power in 1933, he was enlisted to participate in the state’s propaganda machine. At war’s end Jannings was blacklisted by the Allied authorities, and he never made another film. He died five years later, lonely and bitter. Fritz Wendhausen was a popular film director in the 1920-40s. His Peer Gynt, was rather an adaptation of of Ibsen’s motifs which presented ideology and propaganda of that time though.”

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.

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.

In 1933, Shirley starred in an imitation Our Gang series called the Baby Burlesks, performing astonishingly accurate impressions of Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich.

After a handful of minor roles she created a sensation by stopping the show with her rendition of “Baby Take a Bow “ in Fox’s Stand Up and Cheer. She was promptly promoted to her own starring features, literally saving Fox (and its successor 20th Century Fox) from receivership, and earned a special Oscar in 1934 “ in grateful recognition to her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment.”
