Gregory Peck,Celeste Holm,Elia Kazan,and Dorothy McGuire Autographed 1947 Original Movie Lobby Card "Gentleman's Agreement" Artie Kern Collection

This is an original 1947 lobby card from the Elia Kazan(Oscar Winner) "GENTLEMAN'S AGREEMENT"! This Classic is autographed by Gregory Peck,Celeste Holm,Elia Kazan,Dorothy McGuire!

Mr.Kazan was one of My "Uncle" Sammy's closest Friends and lived on e.90st..I lived on e.71st! Celeste Holm lives(she's 94)! on West Side Of NYC and I brought them to her and she was most kind to sign for the Museum.She would at times make it to UNICEF because she always charged for her signature as long as you supported UNICEF!!!Mr.Peck was on the phone one morning when I got to Sammy's and he said "I got Gregory Peck on the phone,,What do you have for him to sign?"..and I mailed them and Mr.Peck was most kind to sign!!(Brilliant Actor)!They were very close Friends!!

Ms.McGuire almost sent the package back cause when she saw Sammy and the Museum,she thought it was the Other Dorothy McGuire(McGuire Sisters..remember them)!!

Mr.Kazan did NOT like the film even though he Won the Oscar as BEST DIRECTOR!!! He felt that the 2 of them going off together as happy was wrong and that with her attitude towards the Ant-Semetic situation,he never would have gone off with her!!but Darryl F.Zanuck insisted on the "Happy Ending"!!! The way it was in 1947.

 

This item comes from the collection of Artie Kern. Many of the items in Artie's collection were on display in the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in NYC where he also was a consultant in the early 1980s before it closed.  He obtained many of the items with the help of Sammy Cahn who was president at the Hall for 17+ years and Artie acted as his chief A/V man for many years previously.

About Sammy: Sammy Cahn was very much an accomplished lyricist in the entertainment industry and obtained many of the autographs through his personal friends and associations. He scored high notes with Academy Award winning lyrics in four songs (most notable is “Three Coins in the Fountain”). Cahn also kept his feather duster busy with five Golden Globes and an Emmy on his bookshelf. If that’s not enough clout,  Sammy was Frank’s personal lyricist for 50 years at Columbia Records, Capital Records and in the ‘60s Frank started Reprise Records. Many of their hits like “Second Time Around “ and “Call Me Irresponsible” (Oscar winner) were successful. They were recorded on Reprise in the 1960s.
