About this Item: 1952. Originalfoto / Privatfoto (Unikat) 8,2 x 13 cm. von Frank Capra signiert Sehr schöner Zustand Lifelong authenticity guarantee! Lebenslange Echtheitsgarantie! Many autographs obtained in person Frank Capra, (* 18. Mai 1897 in Bisacquino, Sizilien als Francesco Rosario Capra; ? 3. September 1991 in La Quinta, Kalifornien) war ein US-amerikanischer Filmregisseur, Produzent und Autor italienischer Herkunft. Er zählte zu den erfolgreichsten Regisseuren seiner Generation. Aus einer ärmlichen Auswandererfamilie stammend, gehörte Capra in den 1930er- und 1940er-Jahren zu Hollywoods populärsten und angesehensten Regisseuren. Mit den Filmen Es geschah in einer Nacht (1934), Mr. Deeds geht in die Stadt (1936) und Lebenskünstler (1938) gewann er dreimal den Oscar für die Beste Regie. Weitere bedeutende Filmklassiker unter seiner Regie sind Mr. Smith geht nach Washington (1939), Arsen und Spitzenhäubchen (1944) sowie Ist das Leben nicht schön? (1946). Häufig drehte er Tragikomödien im Kontext der Great Depression, die ? stets auf der Seite des ?Kleinen Mannes? ? zu gesellschaftlichen und sozialen Themen Stellung bezogen. Als sein Erfolg zunehmend nachließ, zog er sich 1964 nach 54 Filmen in den Ruhestand zurück.(Quelle: Wikipedia) María Mercader (* 6. März 1918 in Barcelona; ? 26. Januar 2011 in Rom) war eine spanische Schauspielerin. Ihre Filmkarriere begann 1939 in dem Operettenfilm Molinos de viento. Sie spielte hauptsächlich in den Jahren von 1939 bis 1952 in spanischen und italienischen Produktionen. Danach war sie nur noch selten in Filmen und Fernsehspielen zu sehen. Mercader war eine Cousine[1] zweiten Grades oder die Schwester von Ramón Mercader, dem Mörder Leo Trotzkis. Bei den Dreharbeiten zu Un garibaldino al convento 1942 lernte sie Vittorio De Sica kennen. Dieser war der Regisseur des Films und mit der Schauspielerin Giuditta Rissone verheiratet. Zwar heirateten Mercader und De Sica 1959 in Mexiko, doch diese Ehe galt offiziell nicht. Erst ihre Heirat 1968 in Paris ? De Sica hatte für die Scheidung von Rissone die französische Staatsbürgerschaft angenommen ? wurde anerkannt. Der Komponist Manuel De Sica (1949?2014) und der Schauspieler Christian De Sica (* 1951) sind ihre gemeinsamen Söhne. 1978 erschien das von ihr verfasste Buch La mia vita con Vittorio De Sica, welches auch auf Spanisch (1980) und Französisch (1981) veröffentlicht wurde.(Quelle: Wikipedia) AK0001 Weitere Informationen zu unserem Charity-Projekt finden Sie unter www phoenix-antiquariat de Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 50.

About this Item: 1970s, 1970. An archive of signed letters and greeting cards from cinematographer Joseph Walker in correspondence with Victor Scherle and William Levy, authors of ÔThe Films of Frank CapraÕ and ÔAffectionately, T. S. Eliot: The Story of a Friendship: 1947-1965.Õ In a photocopy of an autograph letter signed, dated Sept. 24, 1974 Mr. Walker replies to an inquiry from Scherle and Levy requesting information and/or photos which relate to working with Capra. Walker writes in part: ÒI am enclosing a photo as requested. I do not remember when it was taken, perhaps on ÔLost Horizon.Õ.I do not have any particular anecdotes, except those already mentioned in the Barbara Stanwyck book by Ella Smith or in Frank CapraÕs book. But I believe that Frank Capra, with his excellent technical education and deep understanding of human values, enthusiasm for life, and great sense of humor, would have been a success in any area. That he chose motion pictures for his field of endeavor was very fortunate for all of us that were associated with him. And very fortunate for Columbia Pictures, too. I am especially appreciative of Frank CapraÕs understanding and help on the technical problems of those early days.Ó In a later typed letter signed from Walker to Scherle and Levy, dated Nov. 25, 1978, he writes: Ò. I was so happy to receive the autographed copy of ÔThe Films of Frank Capra.Õ The arrangement of valuable text, the printing, the reproduction of the photographs, the whole Make-up of the book, is of the highest order.I, too, am writing a book. A great deal of it is about the early days, before Frank Capra, even before Columbia. But of course, Frank Capra and Columbia will be an important part of it. I have been working on it for two years and it will be a while yet before it is finished.Ó His book was published in 1984, entitled ÔThe Light on Her FaceÕ with his wife Juanita Walker]. Joseph Walker was one of the great cinematographers of Hollywood's golden age known for the many films he did with Frank Capra, including such classics as Platinum Blonde (1931), It Happened One Night (1934), Lost Horizon (1937), You CanÕt Take it With You (1938), and It's a Wonderful Life (1946). He had the well-earned reputation as CapraÕs favorite Director of Photography. Although nominated for three Oscars (You Can't Take It with You, Only Angels Have Wings (1939), Here Comes Mr. Jordan (1941), and The Jolson Story (1946)) he never won, until he received the Gordon E. Sawyer Award in 1982. All of the material is in near fine to fine condition. Seller Inventory # 18837E
