ALEC GUINNESS. Vintage 7.8 x 9.8 glossy black and white chest-up still in costume as Benjamin Disraeli in The Mudlark (1950), signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “To Dick/with best wishes/Alec Guinness.” Near fine condition, with portions of the writing penned against darker areas of the image, readable with moderate contrast; and a noticeable soft diagonal bend in the background at the top right that slightly detracts from overall appearance. Somewhat uncommon this early.
