    Bebe Daniels & Ben Lyon Autographed Photograph

    For Sale: £150.00

    Ben Lyon began (1901-1979) his career as an actor on Broadway. He starred in a number of Hollywood movies, notably 1930's Hell's Angels. Following the decline of his acting career he became a studio executive with 20th Century Fox.

    It was while working at 20th Century Fox that Lyon discovered a young actress, Norma Jeane Dougherty, renamed her Marilyn Monroe, organised her first colour screen test, and signed her to her first studio contract. Of Monroe, he is quoted as saying that she was "Jean Harlow all over again".

    Lyon married Bebe Daniels (1901-1971) in 1930, at the height of his success. Daniels was a star in her own right, carving out a career as a child actress in Hollywood's silent movies. She made over 230 films during her career and, from the 1950s, worked on radio and television to much acclaim in England.

    This beautiful photograph shows the successful couple bathed in soft light. The Hollywood sheen of glamour is evident; flawless skin and engaging eyes. Lyon's hair is greased back neatly, his eyebrows slightly furrowed with intensity. Daniel's hair is softly curled, her eyes and lips glossed heavily in make-up.

    Sepia-toned, and mounted, the photograph measures 6½" x 4½", without mounting. Both the signatures of Daniels and Lyon feature in the bottom portion of the photograph: "Our best wishes, Bebe Daniels, Ben Lyon".

    The photograph is in excellent condition, the autographs distinctly marked on the photograph's white border.

  • Bert Lahr signed photograph as the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz

    • A highly rare piece of memorabilia from one of the greatest films in cinema history.

    Bert Lahr (1895-1967) was an American stage and screen performer, best-known for his role as the Cowardly Lion in the timeless classic The Wizard of Oz.

    Lahr began his career as a vaudeville performer on the Columbia Burlesque Circuit, and worked his way up to starring roles on Broadway, before heading to Hollywood in the 1930s.

    He featured in several films before landing the part of the Cowardly Lion in the 1939 MGM musical, starring alongside Judy Garland, Ray Bolger and Jack Haley.

    During filming, Lahr was known to ad-lib lines, causing numerous re-takes as his co-stars burst out laughing. When later asked by reporters if he was worried about being typecast, he replied, "Yeah, but how many parts are there for lions?"

    Lahr returned to the stage later in his career, co-starring in the 1956 US premiere of Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot, and winning the 1964 Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his role in Foxy.

    This vintage 10" x 8" photograph features Lahr in his full Cowardly Lion costume, and is signed "To Vickie, with love, Uncle Bert" at the top of the image in blue ink. The photograph was originally inscribed to Lahr's niece Vickie Arthur.

    Bert Lahr was an infrequent signer of autographs during his life, and signed photographs of him in his most iconic role as the Cowardly Lion are considered highly rare.

    Thomas was master craftsman of the 'baddie'; his work includes Cinderella's Stepmother, Alice in Wonderland's Queen of Hearts and Peter Pan's Captain Hook.

    Elizabeth Taylor love letter to Richard Burton

    The unique Elizabeth Taylor Richard Burton love letter

     

    For Sale: £35,000

     

    Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011).

    A love letter written, in pencil, by Elizabeth Taylor to her husband Richard Burton on their 10 year wedding anniversary, March 15th 1974, just days before their breakup.

    Taylor and Burton were renting a house in Oroville, California while Burton was filming his latest movie "The Klansman". Their lease on the home began on February 15th 1974.

    The letter reads in full:

    "My darling (my still) My husband. I wish I could tell you of my love for you, of my fear, my delight, my pure animal pleasure of you - (with you) - my jealousy, my pride, my anger at you, at times.

    Most of all my love for you, and whatever love you can dole out to me - I wish I could write about it but I can't. I can only "boil and bubble" inside and hope you understand how I really feel.

    Anyway I lust thee, Your (still) Wife. P.S. O'Love, let us never take eachother for granted again! P.P.S. How about that - 10 years!!"

    Taylor had warned Burton from the start of their marriage in 1964 that she had zero tolerance for infidelity. However during the filming of When Eagles Dare, Burton resumed an affair with co-star Mary Ure.

    After that, Taylor made sure she was with on set with Burton every day in 1969 for the shooting of Anne Of The Thousand Days.

    A further affair with co-star Genevieve Bujold lasted many years. An affair with Nathalie Delon followed in 1972, along with rumours of an affair with Raquel Welch.

    Taylor finally lost patience during the filming of The Klansman when Burton commenced an affair with "a teenager, a hotel waitress and a string of other women."

    The love letter is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Toni Hennings, the woman who rented the Oroville house to them:

    "This letter written by Elizabeth Taylor while renting my home from Feb 15th til April 18th 1974. It was left behind - inside a book in a drawer under the masterbedroom bed."

    To our knowledge no other Taylor-Burton love letter has ever been offered for sale.

    • Brilliant caption, naming Dean as "our regular basketball guy"

    James Dean (1931-1955) was an American actor, who has gone on to become a cultural icon - the ultimate Rebel Without a Cause. Due to his death at an early age, his memorabilia is incredibly rare and valuable, giving rise to the term "The James Dean Effect".

    Below his photograph, Dean is described as "our regular basketball guy, and when you're around him - time will fly". The right-hand page edge has some loss where it has been carelessly removed from the book, with some minor loss to the edge of Dean's portrait.

    Marilyn Monroe 'Happy Birthday Mr President' lock of hair

    £250,000.00

    • A large lock of Marilyn Monroe's hair, from the night she performed 'Happy Birthday Mr President' for John F. Kennedy at Madison Square Garden.
    • Accompanied by an instant photograph taken at the same event, bearing Monroe's lipstick kiss on the reverse.

    Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) is the most iconic female star in Hollywood history.

    Having started her career as a model, Monroe made a name for herself as a star of musicals and comedies including Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, How to Marry a Millionaire, The Seven Year Itch and Some Like It Hot.

    But along with her role as an international sex symbol, Monroe also took her craft seriously and studied method acting under Lee Strasberg at the Actor's Studio.

    Away from the silver screen, Monroe lived a turbulent personal life, including failed marriages to baseball star Joe DiMaggio and playwright Arthur Miller, and battles with depression, anxiety and addiction.

    These battles finally took their toll in August 1962, when she tragically died as the result of a barbiturates overdose at the age of 36.

    Today, more than 50 years after her death, Monroe's stunning beauty, supreme talent and intense personal demons continue to fascinate fans around the world.  

    History of the lock of hair

    On the night of May 19, 1962, Marilyn Monroe gave one of the most famous performances of her career, during a celebration for President John F. Kennedy's 45th birthday at Madison Square Garden in New York.

    Monroe sang a sultry version of 'Happy Birthday Mr President' whilst wearing a virtually see-through dress, fuelling rumours of a secret affair with the President which have endured to this day.

    Just hours before her performance, Monroe visited her personal hairdresser Robert Champion at the Coiffures Americana Beauty Salon, housed within the luxury department store Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue.

    After he had cut and styled her hair, Monroe asked Champion to attend the event with her, so that he could touch up her hair and make-up just before she went on-stage.

    Upon her arrival at Madison Square Garden, Monroe was presented with her outfit for the evening. Designed by Jean Louis, the highly revealing, flesh-coloured dress was covered in thousands of rhinestones, and was so tight Monroe had to be sewn into it, delaying her stage entrance.

    Robert Champion recalled those moments before her performance:

    "As we stood for a long time back stage at Madison Square Garden, she was very nervous about her appearance. I refreshed her lipcolor, powdered her nose, checked her blusher, and then she was announced again 'Miss Marilyn Monroe, better late than never.' In her very tight gown, she had difficulty ascending the make-shift stairs and I assisted her to the top where the spotlight hit her. The next is history."

    The lock

    This large lock of blonde hair was trimmed from Monroe's head by Champion just prior to that iconic performance, and remained in his personal collection for decades.

    The lock measures approximately 2.57" by 1.18" (7cm by 3cm).

    It is accompanied by an instant Polaroid photograph of Monroe, taken at a party following the event.

    The image captures Monroe smiling radiantly, perhaps in relief after getting through the performance, and bears her lipstick print in place of a signature on the reverse.

    Together, these two items represent a unique opportunity to own a part of cultural history, and an intimate piece of the most famous woman of the 20th century.

    Huge prices for Monroe memorabilia

    For collectors, Marilyn Monroe remains the most sought-after of any star in Hollywood history, and her personal memorabilia regularly sells for seven-figure sums.

    In December 2016, the dress worn by Monroe during her performance of 'Happy Birthday' sold at Julien's Auctions for $4.8 million, making it the second-most valuable dress ever sold.

    The record is held by the famous white dress she wore in The Seven Year Itch, which sold in 2011 for $5.6 million.

Whoever performed the most alluring walk would win the part: Monroe was selected.

    While promoting this film, Monroe met several children at the Children's Home of Rockford, in June of 1949. Many can be seen holding promotional slips like this 3" x 7" page, signed on the reverse by Monroe in pencil.

    The page is also autographed by Harpo Marx's film double. Both signatures were obtained in the lobby of the State Theatre in Rockford, Illinois. Some light wrinkling, creasing and toning, otherwise in fine condition.

No, I never appeared in a Circus, altho my Father owned at one time in England, and also operated 6 legitimate theatres, beside authoring & producing several Dramatic shows in which he appeared with my Mother - my Brothers & Sister too were in the business. I came to this Country in 1910 in a Vaudeville show with Charlie Chaplin, it was a troupe called Fred Karno's London Comedians, we had a repertoire of sketches, the most well known was titled "A Night in An English Music Hall".

    Yes, Babe had a nice Tenor voice, he used to be a Boy Tenor in Minstrel Shows - Quartettes Etc. that deep voice you mention in "Way Out West" was not mine, a colored fellow sang while I just 'mouthed' the lyrics for comedy effect. I do'nt think seperate recordings were ever recorded of that particular number.

    The TV reception is much better at the new place, we can get all 7 channels. Well, think this covers your questions, so bye for now.

    Regards & best wishes Glenn.

    Sincerely:- Stan Laurel

    Walt Disney Black & White Signed Photograph

    £6,000.00

    • A beautiful black & white photograph signed by one of the 20th century's most important cultural icons

    Walt Disney (1901 – 1966) was a celebrated voice actor, animator, film producer and entrepreneur who became an American cultural icon.

    Having founded the Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio in 1923, Disney rose to fame with the creation of Mickey Mouse and became a household name across the world.

    As a producer he pushed the boundaries of animation, releasing classics such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Dumbo and Fantasia, along with the Oscar-winning Mary Poppins.

    Disney currently holds the record for the number of Academy Awards won by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations.

    In 1955 Disney also established Disneyland, the most successful theme park ever built, which to date has attracted more than 650 million visitors.

    Walt Disney's films have entertained millions of viewers, influenced generations of film-makers, and Walt Disney Studios remains the most famous and successful entertainment company in the world. 

    This vintage black & white photograph features Walt Disney seated next to a large dog, and is signed and inscribed ""To Andy, All Best, Walt".

    The photograph was inscribed to Andy Engman (1911 – 2004), a renowned animator who worked for Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California from 1937 until 1971.

    He started his career as an uncredited 'In-Betweener' animator on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and later worked on Donald Duck and Goofy shorts, as well as features such as Fantasia and Pinocchio, before moving into management at the studio.

    The photograph is signed in black ink. The photo itself measures a vast 33 x 26.7cm (13" x 10.5") and is mounted to an overall size of 50.6 x 40.5cm (approx. 20" x 16").

    Walt Disney Signed Animation Cel

    £12,000.00

    • An original production-used animation cel signed and inscribed by Walt Disney

    Walt Disney (1901 – 1966) was an animator, film producer and entrepreneur renowned for creating Mickey Mouse and establishing one of the world's most famous film studios.

    Disney is regarded as one of animation's greatest pioneers, and he produced landmark feature films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Dumbo and Fantasia.

    Disney currently holds the record for the number of Academy Awards won by an individual, having won 22 Oscars from 59 nominations.

    In 1955 Disney also oversaw the creation of Disneyland, the world's most successful theme park, which to date has attracted more than 650 million visitors.

    Today Walt Disney is regarded as one of the most significant and iconic cultural figures of the 20th century. 

     

    This hand-painted gouache-on-celluloid animation cel was created for the film Melody Time, the 10th theatrically released animated feature produced by Walt Disney, released in May 1948.

    It was the last anthology feature the studio produced, and featured seven short animations set to popular songs, in the same manner as the classic Fantasia.

    This animation cel and background is taken from the segment Once Upon a Wintertime, and depicts two ice skaters dancing together, along with a pair of rabbits dancing behind them.

    Once Upon a Wintertime's stylised backgrounds were created by Mary Blair, the highly influential Disney concept artist who worked on features such as Cinderella and Sleeping beauty, and who helped design the popular Disneyland ride It's a Small World.

    The mount of the image is signed and inscribed "To Ann Shelton, All Best Wishes, Walt Disney", and is dated circa 1951.

    Anne Shelton, OBE (1923 - 1994) was a British singer renowned for her work entertaining troops during WWII.

    Shelton performed for soldiers throughout the war, touring military bases and hosting the radio show Calling Malta which was broadcast throughout Europe.

    She later recorded several hit songs including ''Galway Bay' and 'Be Mine', which were also popular in the U.S and led to her touring America in 1951.

    It's believed that Shelton acquired this animation cel as a gift from Walt Disney during that tour.

    Disney's inscription and signature are signed in pencil. The image has been mounted, framed and glazed to an overall size of 39.3 x 43.7cm (approx. 15.4" x 17.2").
