    Laurence Olivier Signature. The man commonly referred to as the greatest actor of the century never thought of himself as much of a screen actor, but "just another player." (This from a man who was the first of only two actors to have directed themselves in Oscar winning performances.) Such modesty doesn't dampen a filmography that includes "Wuthering Heights," "Rebecca," "Sleuth," and a slew of the best Shakespearean adaptations ever filmed. Featured is a sample of Olivier's signature matted along with the front cover of the December 17, 1951, edition of "Life" magazine, which featured Sir Larry on the cover along with then-wife Vivien Leigh. A very attractive pair, and the actors aren't bad either. With COA from PSA/DNA.
