ALFRED LUNT & LYNN FONTANNE AUTOGRAPHS


Alfred Lunt was born August 12, 1892 – died August 3, 1977.  Lunt was a Tony Award-winning American actor. Lynn Fontanne (December 6, 1887 – July 30, 1983) was a British-born actress who was a major stage star in the United States for over 40 years. Along with his wife Lynn Fontanne, whom he married on May 26, 1922, in New York City, Lunt was half of the pre-eminent Broadway acting couple of American history, and they have a Broadway theater named after them (The Lunt-Fontanne). Celebrated for their sophisticated comic skills, they were known for their ability to swiftly overlap dialogue with such adroitness that every word was understood. Secure in their public image as a happily married couple, they sometimes titillated audiences by playing adulterers, as in Robert Sherwood’s Reunion in Vienna, or as part of a menage a trois in Noel Coward’s Design for Living. They appeared together in over 24 plays – and most recently on an American postage stamp. The couple also made one film together (The Guardsman 1931), starred in several radio dramas for the Theatre Guild in the 1940s and starred in a few television productions in the 1950s and 1960s. They retired in 1966. Original Alfred Lunt & Lynn Fontanne Autographs, hand signed on Heavy Card Stock (autographs are on individual cards). Regular Price – $ 375.00 / Sale Price – $ 198.95.
