An Original Vintage Theatrical Autographed 8" x 10" [20 x 25 cm] Movie Still (Learn More)

Anthony Hopkins was born Philip Anthony Hopkins in Wales in 1937. He was one more of those excellent British actors who might well have never made a single movie, but in 1968 he was cast in The Lion in Winter (written by James Goldman), in the role of Richard, one of Henry II's three sons, and when he was able to hold his own alongside the wonderful acting of Peter O'Toole and Katherine Hepburn, the world took notice of this fine Welsh actor. He alternated between TV, movies, and the stage for a decade, and did not achieve major stardom, but in 1978 he made quite an impression in Magic (written by William Goldman, brother of James, who had written The Lion in Winter), in which Hopkins played a deranged ventriloquist who finds his life being controlled by his dummy, who has a mind of his own! Much more TV, movies, and stage work followed (Hopkins stays extremely busy!), and in 1991 Hopkins had the type of role that comes once in a lifetime in The Silence Of The Lambs (in his Best Actor Academy Award winning role as Doctor Hannibal Lector). The Lecter character had appeared in the 1986 movie Manhunter, where he was portrayed by Brian Cox. He was intended to be a somewhat minor supporting character in The Silence of the Lambs, but Hopkins portrayal was so intense and so amazing that he became the center of the movie, and Hopkins won the Best Actor Oscar, even though his character is onscreen for only a small portion of the movie! Hopkins had many distinguished roles in the 1990s, including starring roles in two of the finest Merchant/Ivory productions, Howards End, and The Remains Of The Day (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film). He also appeared in some real clunkers (remember The Road to Wellville, Meet Joe Black, or Hannibal?) but he is always worth watching, even in his most lesser efforts. One of his very best performances was in 2005's The World's Fastest Indian, where he portrays real life race car driver Burt Munro, who traveled from New Zealand to Utah in 1967 and at the age of 68, driving a 1920 Indian motorcycle, he set the land-speed world record at Utah's Bonneville Salt Flats! Some of his other movies include: Amistad (nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award for this film), and Nixon (nominated for the Best Actor Academy Award for this film). As of 2021, Hopkins is still alive at the age of 83!
Important Added Info: Note that this still has been personally autographed (signed) by Anthony Hopkins!

Note that this autographed item is part of a remarkable collection. In each of our last several all-signed auctions, we auctioned hundreds of items from this collection and now we are auctioning many more signed photos and miscellaneous other signed items (plus 50 signed index cards that have a different note on those)!
     In the 1970s, our consignor was a teacher who taught a film class, and he also part-time ran the local movie theater (and he saved all the presskits from the movies the theater showed).
     Starting in the late 1970s through the late 1980s, he wrote to famous celebrities, and enclosed an 8x10 still or repro (or sometimes another item) from his collection, and he wrote a literate personalized letter, talking about his work as a film teacher, and discussing his favorite movie by that star.
     He received signed photos back from a good percentage of the people he wrote to, and if the people simply sent him a stock photo back, he did not save it, but if he felt the autograph was genuine, and if they added a personalized note, then he did save them.
     In the late 1980s, he pretty much stopped sending letters and photos, simply because he was just too busy. So this item (and the vast majority of the other photos and other items we are auctioning for this consignor) were obtained in the late 1970s or 1980s, through personal correspondence with this star. This is of course excellent, because back at that time celebrities were not selling their signatures nearly as much, and many of the stars were pretty forgotten and were happy to get letters from people like our consignor!
     He of course does not have any "Certificates of Authenticity", but he only kept ones he felt were surely authentic, and those are the ones we are auctioning. However, bidders can certainly compare the signatures to known examples on the internet to judge for themselves.

As is true of all the signed items we are currently auctioning, we give every buyer 30 days in which to review what they purchased and they can return any item as long as it is within 30 days of the end of the auction. On non-signed items, we give a "lifetime guarantee" on everything we auction, but on signed items, we give the above modified guarantee of 30 days after the auction closes.

Condition: very good to fine.
