One of Britain's most popular comedians had a career spanning over half a century, though some resented his American style delivery; starred in such English film classics as "Carry on Sergeant" and a popular English television show, "Fast and Loose," and hosted several game shows such as "The Golden Shot"; author a memoir late in life, "Crying with Laughter." TLS, 1p, 5¼" X 7", Eggington, U.K., 1990 March 26. Addressed to Mr. Stanhope. Fine. Answers an admirer's question about favorite performers: " Buster Keaton in SHERLOCK JNR is my answer to my favourite performance by an actor. And the actress: Luise Rainer in THE GREAT ZIEGFIELD. But wait, what about W.C. Fields in IT'S A GIFT? And Bette Davis in THE LETTER? Then I remembered Bogart and Hepburn in THE AFRICAN QUEEN, Bogart and Bergman in CASABLANCA. Bogart and anybody in everything he did. So I asked myself who I'd like to see right this minute and what popped into my mind but Jerry Lewis in THE NUTTY PROFESSOR, Karloff and Price and Lorre in THE RAVEN, and Dietrich in THE SCARLETT EMPRESS -- so I found the videos and watched them. Here's my conclusion: Favourite performance by an actor: Mifune in SEVEN SAMURAI and/or RASHOMON. Favourite performance by an actress: Hayworth in GILDA. Easy!" Bold, attractive signature and "All the best." Interesting, amusing film commentary with an English twist. N° de ref. de la librería 16448
