    Description

    Laurence Olivier Celebrates Shakespeare's Birthday. Having already appeared as Orlando in As You Like It and destined to star in Hamlet, Richard III, and Henry VIII," who better to celebrate the Bard's birthday than Laurence Olivier himself. Of course, his wife, Vivien Leigh, still basking in the success of Gone With the Wind, accompanied him, also signing this page from the Clifton Webb guest book dated April 23, 1940. Two days later, George Cukor, stopped by for a visit and spelled April as "Aprile," adding the remark "It's the French in me." May 14th was the day that Noel Coward and Katharine Hepburn were Webb's guests, both signing boldly and adding the date next to their signatures. In very good condition with only very mild toning. With COA from PSA/DNA.
