PETER COOK

Glossy 8×10 black and white chest-up lobby still portrait from Getting It Right (1989), boldly signed in blue felt tip ink, “Best wishes/Peter Cook.”  Very fine condition.  British comic actor Peter Cook first came to prominence as a member of the “Beyond the Fringe” comedy troupe. The company also featured Dudley Moore, who would become Cook’s partner in numerous theatrical, television, and film projects, including the cult classic, Bedazzled (1967). Their partnership was strained by Cook’s alcoholism, which also repeatedly disrupted his career and contributed significantly to his early death at age 57.
