Product Description

John Wayne Gary Cooper Montgomery Clift Vincent Price Jayne Mansfield James Stewart Gig Young Joseph Kearns Signed Album Autographed
The album "Music From The Movies 1958" signed on the front cover by Jayne Mansfield, John Wayne, Vincent Price and Joseph Kearns (best remembred as Mr Wilson from "Dennis The Menace") in pencil, and Gary Cooper, Montgomery Clift, James Stewart and Gig Young in black ballpoint or biro pen. The album features Ramon Duval and his Orchestra, and was released on Mercury's short-lived Wing label. The signatures were obtained by Cicely Steinberg, who grew up on Broadway from the early 1950's onward. She would acquire albums at the nearby Colony Records store on Broadway. The owner would let her take records from the recycle bin, that were to be shipped back to the manufacturers, if she would obtain some signatures for him also. She would frequent the theater district and nearby hotels, and gather the signatures of whatever stars she may happen to encounter. It may seem somewhat incongrous to have such a low-budget item signed by such high-budget stars, but this is what Cicely and her fellow early collectors could afford to get their hands on. The album cover is in overall good shape, there is some seam splitting. The vinyl shows very minor wear. There is no paper inner sleeve. An impressive collection of movie legends on one item.
