Dirk Bogarde

Great British actor and author.

Bogarde’s long list of excellent films includes The Blue Lamp (1950), Doctor in the House (1953), Ill Met By Moonlight (1957), A Tale of Two Cities (1958), Victim (1961), The Servant (1963), Darling (1965), The Damned (1969), Death in Venice (1970) and The Night Porter (1974).

This is an excellent original vintage black and white/hint of sepia photograph (9.5" x 7.5"), publicising Bogarde's 1958 film, The Doctor's Dilemma, and featuring him with his co-star, Leslie Caron. The stills photographer on this film was the great Cyril Stanborough (1892-1960), who worked on many classic British films of the period, including Great Expectations (1946) and this photograph is from his own personal collection - it is nicely signed and inscribed to him ("To Cyril, best wishes and thanks from Dirk Bogarde  30.6.58") in blue ink across the image. In very good condition (there's an official Cyril Stanborough stamp to the reverse).
