    Cast-Signed "What Price Glory" Program. An impressive array of autographs is featured in this program book for John Ford's 1949 all-star production of the Maxwell Anderson play. Inscribed to fellow cast member George O'Brien, featured signatures include Gregory Peck, John Wayne, Maureen Sullivan, Pat O'Brien, Ward Bond, Oliver Hardy, Harry Carey Jr., and Ed Begley, as well as sundry other cast members and even some key military personnel. Ford later adapted the play for film in 1952, a version with James Cagney that was redesigned as a musical. Also included is a small flyer for the one-night-only performance, two congratulatory telegrams to O'Brien dated February 21 and 22, 1949, two newspaper clippings with reviews of the performance, and a thank you letter to O'Brien from the Military Order of the Purple Heart, dated May 12, 1949. A great array of signatures and memorabilia; the program is in Fine to Very Fine condition with mild wear and some soiling to the cover, and the other items are in Fine condition with wild wear and soiling and mild to heavy tanning. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
