Includes are two copies of a printed menu (5 1/4Ó x 8 1/2Ó, each with its own No.) for a dinner in honor of Mr. Widmark on the occasion of his being awarded the The Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Order of Arts and Letters) held at le Fouquet's restaurant in Champs-lyses, Paris. The menu has two images of the great actor, one from his earlier days as a Western film star and the other in his persona as a more modern street-wise character. The front cover of the menu has a full-color reproduction of a watercolor of a street view of the restaurant with the Arc de Triomphe in the background. The award began in 1957 in recognition of significant contributions to the arts, literature, or the propagation of these fields, with such noted recipients as T. S. Eliot, Marcel Marceau, Lillian Gish, Clint Eastwood, Ray Bradbury, Patti Smith, Michael Caine, Jeanne Moreau, and George Clooney.

Gaines with a screenplay by Charles Fuller, directed by Volker Schlondorff, and starring Richard Widmark, Louis Gossett, Jr., and Holly Hunter. Also with various news clippings, magazine articles, postcards, and miscellaneous ephemera in the original postmarked envelope addressed to Mr. Widmark in Montecito, CA.

Some of his most memorable films include his debut in Kiss of Death, Judgment at Nuremberg, Yellow Sky, Panic in the Streets, No Way Out, Broken Lance, The Alamo as Jim Bowie, Two Rode Together, and Cheyenne Autumn. His sole Academy Awards nomination was for best actor in a supporting role for Kiss of Death, though he won the Golden Globe for the role. Bookseller Inventory # 19553E
