ALEXANDER GODUNOV

Scan available upon request. Piercing glossy 8×10 half-length black and white portrait from Die Hard, boldly signed and inscribed in black felt tip ink, “To/Roy H. Cohen/All my/Best!/A. Godunov.”. Very fine condition. The inscription could likely be erased, if so desired.  Ballet dancer Alexander Godunov appeared with the American Ballet Theater until a never-explained dustup with artistic director and fellow Russian emigre Mikhail Baryshnikov led to his termination from the company. Subsequently, he turned to acting, giving memorable performances in two mega-hits, Witness (1985) and Die Hard (1988). Expressing distaste for most of the roles that were offered him after these films, Godunov made only a few more film appearances before dying unexpectedly at age 46.
